Aztec...Van Alstyne Texas

The Aztec Theater was the third, last and most popular theater for Van Alstyne. Reeves Cleaners opened on the lot where the Aztec Theater had stood for 27 successful years.

It had a big dedication day August 27, 1936 with its first manager being L.B. Crow. Later in its run the owners were June Meredith and the Lutzer brothers. Theater patrons of the time will remember Marlene Hill who in the year 1950 always made sure everyone in the theater had a box of popcorn. As with so many theaters the Aztec Theater was destroyed by a fire which ended this busy little town’s theater history.
