Cole Theatre...Hallettsville Texas

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This small-town theater features a cream colored facade with red trim and red tile awnings. The building is probably from the ‘20s. The street level is unfinished wood, and the lobby appears to have been redone in a '70s basement style with woodgrained fiberboard. The marquee is very simple, and the neon appears functional.

More information: The Cole opened in 1929, and was owned by Mart Cole, who eventually owned a chain of theatres in South Central Texas. It seated 700, and featured Spanish murals, which still exist. More information in this article: http://www.vbmonline.com/features/999-40.html
