This theater opened in downtown Dallas in 1969 as the first theater built since the 1930’s. The opening attraction was the re-make of "The Great Train Robbery".
From my recollection is was probably in the 1,000-1,500 seat range and had a balcony. "Myra Breckenridge" and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" were the kind of fare that played here.
It was the same style of theater as the Astor Plaza in New York City. I saw "Papillon" here as a young boy.
It was later triplexed, and "Emmaunelle" had a long engagement. Then lots and lots of blaxploitation and kung-fu films. I would estimate it was closed around 1980. It now forms part of a hotel.
