Mulkey Theatre ... Clarendon Texas

Viewing: Photo | Street View

When I last saw the Mulkey in 1988 it stood closed and lonely. It had a wonderful double sided marquee that extended out from the building and and formed a point. On top of the marquee “Mulkey” was spelled out in individual dark red letters that were outlined with neon tubing. The front of the building had pink and red tile.

Does anyone know the root of the Mulkey name? It’s the only one with that name in the database.

According to this article about efforts to restore the Mulkey, the theater opened in 1946 as a rebuilt version of an earlier theater on the site, the Cozy, which was destroyed by fire: View link. The theater was named for a Mr. Homer Mulkey by his widow; Mr. Mulkey operated theaters in the Clarendon area.
