McAllen Palace Theatre, 1954

Viewing: Photo | Street View

In the early-1940’s, the Palace Theatre was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc, through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell. By 1956 it was operated by Texas Consolidated Theatres, Inc, and in that year they remodeled the Palace Theatre. It was still listed as open in 1950.

If you go to the Google Map and move the gold guy to the corner building which you think is the Family Dollar (but that is the next building 203), you will see a building painted half brown and half cream with Bonita on it. That of course is the same building that you see in the post card.

OPEN 1930-1969?
