Here is information on the Plains Theater from the Lubbock Avalanche Journal. There is an opening ad and closing story in photo section.

July 27, 1946: Opened by Preston E. Smith

July 19, 1973: Closed, while operated as an X-rated theatre

The history of Preston E. Smith is more interesting than the Plains Theater itself.

Preston Earnest Smith Was governor of Texas from 1969-1973. He previously was lieutenant governor in 1963 when Governor John Connally was wounded in Dallas.

He operated the Tech and State Theatres, and the Trail Drive-In.
