The Alpha Theatre was opened and operated from around/between 1950-1970. Opened in Waco (still semi-called historically ‘Six Shooter Junction’ at the time) by residents; Heyward Weaver Jr.(1921-2005), Edward D. Bonner Jr.(1919-1986) and George L. Pryor(1918-1963), ex-GI’s returning home from World War II.

The Alpha Theatre was predominately the only African-American theatre in Waco other than the Gem Theatre (but, only for a period of time until the Gem Theatre closed).
