The Yale Theatre was mentioned in the June 3, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World, along with a house called the Majestic. The item said that J. F. Green, of the Yale and Majestic Theatres, had paid a visit to the film exchanges in Dallas the week of May 8-13.

This encomium for the Yale Theatre in Cleburne was published in the January, 1921, issue of The Texas Railway Journal:

“The Yale is the ‘Home of Refined Music,’ cool, well ventilated and show the latest moving pictures, and you will enjoy going here for a few moments of amusement and recreation when down town and have the time to spare. A good movie is helpful, restful and enjoyable most any day in the week, and few people there are who absent themselves all the time from the movies. So when you do go, see the Yale, and the genial manager, A. F. Chavey, will appreciate your coming.”

This theater was owned and operated by my Great Grandfather Amiel Frederick Chavey back in the 1920’s.
