The Hope Theatre, on Elm Street in Dallas, opened in 1921. It was designed by W. Scott Dunne and Alfred Charles Finn. It was taken over by the Interstate Theatre circuit and renamed Melba Theatre 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.
Any further details about the Melba’s history would be greatly appreciated…
