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.

The Waco News Tribune shows that this theatre was open in 1948.Does anyone have a photo of it?
