Closed many years, still intact. I know it was open in the 1960’s.

I drove by this loaction yesterday. It is barly visible as a former Theatre. What a shame! Bricks even filled up areas where windows were.

I drove by it on a recent visit to HOU..barely recognizeable as a theater. It was very run down, but still stands on the east side of the tracks.

I know that during the late 80s it was operated as an auto shop. No telling what condition its in now but it still stands. The marquee is long gone. I believe its for sale.

I drove by there in 2003 when it was something but not an auto shop. Whoever owned or leased it let me look upstairs where the projection booth was. The booth floor was in poor condition with holes & sagging places in it. I found the black 35mm projectors in another room upstairs but don’t remember if they were Simplex, Century, Holmes or something else. The seats & screen downstairs are long gone…

The exterior of the building is still intact. It appears that it has been used as a warehouse. As of July 7, 2006 there was a sign on the building, “For Lease.”

I remember as a kid it was open…70s/80s. Then it was a church maybe..?
