The Tower Theatre is having a GRAND OPENING! Showing our first movie!

If you have information on the history of this great theatre I would appreciate all the help I can get. We want to share this treasure with everyone!
Thanks in advance!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Hey longisland. Having been to Post numerous times over the past 30 years I can tell you it is going to take someone with lots of $$$ and wants to open the TOWER for the fun of it.

There is not enough going in Post for the theater to stand on its own.

I just sold the Tower Theater in Post, TX. If anyone would like to advertise a theater on this page, it is in the top 5 of searches on Google for Theater or Theaters for sale. I sold my theater using this very webpage. Schahara

Hello SCHAHARA

Is your theatre still for sale? What is your asking price? Do you have pictures of the living quarters and backstage areas? Are there dressing rooms?

It looks like a very versitile space.

Is this place worth it? Would the community support a movie theater or is it too small? It’s a great looking place.
