Dreamland Theater

The Dreamland Theater stood between the Texas Theater, later known as the Fine Arts Theater, and the Palace Theater. Walter Kirkland opened it in 1913 and during its reign it was one of Denton’s best. Grover Campbell who was operating the Princess Theater and Palace Theater took the Dreamland Theater over in 1925.

In 1932 the Interstate Theater chain took the Dreamland Theater and Palace Theater over. The two theaters changed hands yet again when Trans Texas Theaters bought them in 1954. The Dreamland Theater lasted only one year after the purchase.

Being next door to the Texas/Fine Arts Theatre, the address of the Dreamland would have been 111 N. Elm Street (the Fine Arts was on a double lot at 113-155 N. Elm.) Until last year this was the address of Ruby’s Diner on the Square, which closed in June, 2011. I can’t find a current occupant of the building, so it might still be vacant at this time.

A property report on this page at City-Data.com says that the improvement on the property, a 3000 square foot commercial building, was built in 1955. If that’s correct, then the Dreamland has been demolished, not converted to commercial space.
