Boxoffice of July 3, 1943, said that Roy V. Starling’s new Wings Theatre had opened the previous Saturday night. The theater was in a converted store building, though Boxoffice said the building was “practically new” at the time.

Boxoffice of March 22, 1965, said that the Wings Theatre had been condemned by the city, and that the owners intended to demolish the building and erect a new theater on the same site. I’ve been unable to discover from Boxoffice if the new theater was ever built.

See my comment on the Texan Theatre at

I describe a theatre across the street from it which might have been the Wings.

At the time of his death Roy Starling owned the WHITE THEATER in Fort Worth, which later became the BERRY. He had sold the WINGS and TEXAN theaters in Grand Prairie to buy the White.
