The Bluebird Theater opened in the Oak Cliff Section of Dallas in 1914 as the Texas Picture Theater. It operated until shortly after 1922 when the Rosewin Theater opened around the corner on Jefferson Boulevard.

The building still stands with a faux log front and became an auto repair shop for many years. In 2004 it was converted back into entertainment use as training space for live theatre performances.

This is no longer an auto repair shop. The building is used as a live performance theater.

Wonder why TeCo makes no reference in its website to its occupancy of a historic neighborhood theater?

The TeCo website has been updated to include information about the rich history of the theater.
