Post Tower

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theater became home to a community group calling themselves the ‘Post Opry’. The marquee and sign have an attractive red and yellow pattern. The marquee is unfortunately missing most of its neon. The yellow brick facade is boxy but interesting with a stepped design and orange brick accents.

It was taken over by a church in late-2009, and in late-2010, it was announced that movies will return.

This place is for sale again. Seems Vegas didnt hold a crowd in Post. Will be hard to sell at the listed price.

Not that I am happy about the Tower Theater (see my March 14, 2007 comment above), but it will take having a benefactor such as the Garza Theater does for the Tower to survive. That benefactor is in Post, but unfortunately the the desire is not.

When I checked there was only 3500 in the whole county. That is people..not livestock. Its a nice place but with numbers like that the city would enjoy that theater best. I agree on the benefactor. To own it and enjoy it but not expect to make money on it.

Good for them. This place cant make it as a theater. Not enough people there. To God the glory. I wish them a blessed run.

Boxoffice of September 25, 1948, said that construction had begun on a new theater at Post, Texas. The project was expected to take eight months to complete. However, I haven’t found the Tower mentioned by name in Boxoffice before 1959, and a building in the midcentury modern style of the Tower might have been built at any time during that decade. Still, the town’s web site says that the other movie theater in Post, the Garza, was closed in 1955, so the Tower was most likely open by then.

Post is mentioned infrequently in Boxoffice, so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to dig up any more about the town’s theaters from that source.
