In 1999 the Pecos was purchased by Richard and Lillian Cresy. The theatre had been shuttered for a number of years and was in very poor condition. They did a great job devoting their time and money to restore the theatre as a first run venue for the citizens of Pecos to have a movie theatre once again.
Peeling pain was scraped from the walls and repainted and the carpeting replaced. A new concession acrea was installed. The seats were dismatled and the frames repainted with the seats getting new covers on the backs and bottoms.
On the front the rectangular marquee above the entrance had the neon replaced, the large double attraction panel above the marquee was repaired with new lighting installed and neon replaced. On top of the panels the neon was also replaced spelling out “State”.
It is sad to say that after their labor of love, the State closed in early 2004 and the theatre is now for sale.
