Saw the original roadshows of Sound of Music and Hawaii here, as well as Dallas 1st run exclusive of Jaws – and many more, too numerous to list – beautiful theater.

Here are some recent photos of the Inwood Theatre. The interior is remarkably similar to that of the late Melrose and Belle Meade theatres in Nashville, TN.

Glad to see the Inwood’s alive and well. Made my acquaintance during the theatre’s 50th anniversary celebration in 1997 (with beautiful prints of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “Out of the Past”). Temporarily worked in Big D for a couple of months then, and returned each time they had a new feature. Also had the dangerous combination of a bookstore nearby and several CD trade-in stores not too far away.

Liked the renovation of the theater. Wouldn’t it be spectacular if they began and ended each film by opening and closing the stage curtains as in the glory days of theaters? Who doesn’t remember the excitement when the lights went down and the movie flickered as the curtains parted to show the huge screen. It appears there are curtains hanging, why not use them?

I saw Sound of Music here in the fall of ‘78. I believe as well that this theater held the original roadshow Dallas release of the film.
In the lobby there was a large advertisement for Animal House at another theater.
SOM was so crowded that the person next to me thought she had come to the wrong theater and was going to unfortunately see Animal House instead.

I believe it was at the Inwood that one of my most memorable movie experiences took place.It was a sneak peek of JAWS.I mean a REAL sneak,Zanuck was there,we were quized,formed to death,and scared to death by Bruce and the blood.Dallas used to have a lot a REAL sneaks.I saw Burt Reynolds and other lumunaries at various screenings.

After undergoing an extensive renovation for the past 2 months, the theatre reopened today.
New screens have been installed, the entry-level restrooms have been remodeled, and leather seats (with increased legroom) have been installed in the two upper level auditoriums.
Definitely worth checking out.
