See my comment under the Liberty. Nothing to do with either theatre, but if your ever on Interstate 40 going by Shamrock by all means get off and see the beautifully restored CONOCO Gas Station and Diner (now the Chamber of Comerce) restored to all it’s Art Deco glory. It’s located south of the Interstate at the Northeast corner of N Main St/Route 83 and Old Route 66/E 12th St/Tx 556 Spur. Looks great at night too with all the restored neon lite! To see a photo go to the first comment and click on Lost Memory’s “This” then click on the small photo to the right of the Texas Theatre.

The Texas is now open only Friday through Sunday. Admission is $5.00 and real butter tops the popcorn. The Sunday night I attended
there were about 20 moviegoers. The Texas does not have a balcony.
