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.

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.
