Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Came across this article in Box Office July 1984, I know this theatre might have been turned in into more screens, but according to the article it read like a one screen movie theatre. "Four men robbed a Fort Worth movie theatre, Lancaster Showcase Theatre. They beat the manager and robbed the theatre, handcuffing him and setting the theatre on fire. Passerbys noticed the smoke and the fire department saved the beaten theatre manager. "They left him to die" according to fireman, Jim Noah. $150.000 fire damage was done to the Lancaster Showcase. Hopefully, folks in Texas can add more on this theatre.

From what I can tell, the structure was either demolished or taken down in size. Looks like an O'Riellys is now on the land..
