Crim Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Crim Theatre was opened by 1936 when it was listed with 336 seats (same in 1939). It was possibly rebuilt (or enlarged) as in 1938 it was listed with 875 seats. It had closed by 1989. In 2015 the neon has been restored on the fa├žade of the building and is illuminated at night. The building however, sits vacant.

A view from 1938 during Kilgore’s oil boom days of the Crim Theater with oil well derricks directly behind the building.
