The Texas Theater launched in 1941. In 1958, with business waining, the Texas successfully tries an influx of art films and adult content. The result is so successful that it comes the Texas Art Theater in November of 1958. In March of 1963, the theater is renamed the Capri Arts Theater trying to become a more legitimate art house. It begins to lean heavily adult and is caught up in a daily raid scenario that takes place late in 1969 and into 1970. When raided in 1974, the theater was known as Capri Studio Adult Artfilm Theatre. The theater simply becomes the Capri Theater lasting as an adult film space until July 1983. In December of 1983, the Capri begins running first-run double feature Spanish language content. In the Fall of 1988, the theater becomes the River Theatre’s space for live plays. And then it becomes the Jubilee Theater.
