The Wheatley Theater was located in the Wheatley Shopping Center and opened for business on February 8, 1950. E.J. Jobe was the owner and had an all African American staff. The $85,000 theater was billed as the first deluxe theater in Dallas for the African American community. The 550-seat theater sported blue and gold drapes, modern projection, five changes of bill per week with a weekly Saturday midnight ramble among its features.
