The chuch did a first class remodel. The structure should last another 100 years. They removed the twin partions and took it down to the walls. They also opened up the original stage area. The chuch installed a digital movie projecter and surround sound. They plan to show movies on a schedule to be determined. Sounds like a win for venue that was on its way out.

The interior was being gutted for a church when I took this photo in April 2011.

From the mid 1950s an almost identical photo postcard view of the Mission Theater in Dalhart as the one above.

According to this man, he saw his first movie at the Mission in 1936:

That movie, “The Plow that Broke the Plains”, was a 30 minute propaganda film promoting the New Deal’s agricultural reforms. Filmed in Dalhart and featuring a local farmer, the movie premiered at the Mission Theater.
