The Texan Theater is coming back to life! The property was recently donated to the City of Athens by the Head family and there is a renewed interest in creating a community type performance venue – the link to the new Facebook page is below

That theater closed in the early 80s along with the Trail drive-in when they built the Cinema 4 (Now owned by Cinemark) behind the old Bealls & Walmart shopping center. It has always been just “there” as if the city doesn’t know what they want to do with it. I only ever saw one movie there “Savannah Smiles” although I was 2 or 3 so I don’t remember it fully.

Here’s a photo I took back around 2001.

Last time I was there, a few years back, it still looked about the same. Altho, the inside was cleaned up. No “junk” on the inside. Just the foundation..

I went to this theater many times as a child and was told that my Great Grandfather’s only trip to a theater was at the Texan.
