The Texas Theatre was operating in the late-1930’s with seating given at 400. It was located across the street from the Leon Theatre on S. Polk Street. The Texas Theatre closed sometime in the 1950’s. It has since been demolished.

The Texas Theater was actually located to the right of the location in the photo, next door to Colberts Department Store. After the theater closed in the 50s the building housed the Downtown Skaggs Drugstore. Skaggs closed January 17, 1970 and the building remained empty. The Colberts building burned September 23, 1977 and a short time later the remains of the department store and the old theater were demolished and replaced with just another flat, ugly parking lot on the once glittering Polk St.
