Cornes Theater...Farmersville Texas

Listed as operating by 1927, the Corner Theatre was closed in 1969. It was briefly reopened in 1971. The two story Cornes Theatre building as of 2009 was being used as a residence. All signage has been removed and it has been painted a two tone bluish green color.

Still, it has retained its identity with a classic outside ticket booth and double door entrances on either side. Advertisement frames remain on the front and the building is trimmed in black ceramic tile.

A local resident recalled the entrance price having been 9 cents as a small girl.

I Can’t Find An Opening Date Or Closing Date To The Cornes Theatre. The Earliest Information I Can Find Is A Late 1935 Showing. It Was Once Closed In 1969 And Reopened After 2 Years In 1971.
