There are a number of owners, including Fibertown.

The June 24, 1939, issue of Boxoffice said that work was progressing on the rebuilding of the Queen Theatre. The project was to cost about $45,000. It was expected to open about October 1. The November 25 issue said that it had opened that week.

I see that 3 closed or closed/demolished theatres are listed for Bryan Texas….I would think that this one would be restored with its unusual facade. Can anyone give us the latest status?

Well, I don’t know how the status can be updated, but the Palace and Dixie, as stated on their pages, are open, just not as full time movie theaters. The Palace holds a movie night at least once a month and the open-air venure hosts numerous other events, including weddings, throughout the year.

The Dixie, now known as The Stafford – Main Street, is a live music venue.

The Queen, as I mentioned a few posts above, is set to have its facade refurbished, and is the only of the three truly closed.

The December 2, 1939, issue of Boxoffice reported that the rebuilt Queen Theatre had opened the previous Tuesday. It was being operated by Mrs. Morris Schulman, who also operated the Palace and Dixie Theatres at Bryan. She had bought the Queen, then dark, in 1938, according to Boxoffice of October 1 that year.

I’d love to see some interior photos. The buildings around it look very nice now. I hope work has already begun.

Looks like the Queen is on 110 South Main, not North Main.

In 1914, a theatre located at 210 South Main in Bryan, TX changed ownership and was renamed the “Queen Theatre”. In 1939, it was sold again and remodeled into the art deco style that has remained. Today, thanks to all of our supporters, we have had a successful start to Saving the Queen! We have restored the façade, the lighting, and we have re-crowned the Queen. We will soon have the roof replacement complete and will be ready to begin the interior remodeling!
