The Brauntex is an amazing addition to this small, Texas town. I have performed in 5 shows at the Brauntex in last 3 years.
The theatre has a board of directors who keep the theatre alive and working. Each season the Brauntex brings in many out of town and out of state groups to perform and in-return, bring diversity and entertainment to N.B.
To this date, the lobby, bathrooms, and concession stand have been renovated and a small office has been added. Currently they are in the process of raising funds to finish the renovation of the auditorium, stage, and backstage.
Since this was originally a theatre designed for movie showings, the stage is extremely small and there really is no “backstage” or “wing space”. The current “dressing rooms” consists of a portable outside the back of the theatre, but soon that is all to change and it will be an amazing space.

oh, and the seating capacity that is listed on here is wrong. I’m wanting to say that it’s a little over 400. I’ll check on the actually number, but it’s 400 something.

i recently found this gem and was very impressed. i did not get a chance to go inside, but looking through the windows i fell in love. whoever restored and reopened it did a great job. the location is great in my opinion, in the old downtown, next to the train museum. too bad that these do not have movies playing anymore.

Yes, but many of the theaters started out as vaudeville and other types of “live” venues. They only happened to become venues for film when film became more popular.

Charles, I’ve been listing as closed things that are no longer movie theaters. I don’t see much difference between retail and music shows as far as cinema goes. Of course one preserves the venue better, but neither shows any movies, which is what the site is about.
