Isis Theatre

Wichita Falls, TX 76301

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The Isis appears in the 1941 Film Daily Yearbook, is not listed in the 1949 Film Daily Yearbook, but appears again in the 1951 volume. It appears to have been an independent house unaffiliated with the Interstate Circuit or any other Texas based chain, making it one of two such large houses in Wichita Falls (the other was the Texan).

Its address isn’t indicated, but it was probably downtown so as to cater to the rapidly expanding population of Sheppard Air Force Base in World War II.

Lived there for about a year and don’t recall hearing about this theatre.
