The Hope Theatre, on Elm Street in Dallas, opened in 1921. It was designed by W. Scott Dunne and Alfred Charles Finn. It was operated by First National Theatres and in 1922 it was renamed Loew’s Melba Theatre when Loew’s Inc. took over. It was taken over by the Interstate Theatre circuit around 1939. It originally had a 3/11 Wurlitzer organ.
The Melba Theatre showed the first 3-D movie, “Bwana Devil”, in 1953, and a year later, began showing Cinerama films, beginning with “This Is Cinerama”. From 1960 until closing in the 1970’s it was named Capri Theatre and has since been demolished.
