The Melrose Theatre in south Waco held its grand opening on September 24, 1946 launching with the film, “Bad Bascomb.” Working on a ten-year lease, the theater closed in July of 1956. W.S. (Bill) McLemore re-opened the theater October 3, 1957 with the film “Bernadine.” The theater appears to go dark at the end of May 1958 as there are no further advertisements or bookings.
