GAINESVILLE, TX — The beautiful art deco State Theater & Backstage Cafe are for sale or lease in historic downtown Gainesville, Cooke County, TX.

Excellent business opportunity as there is not another operating movie theater in the county! Gainesville is approximately one hour from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. The 400+ seat theater and cafe were renovated in 2000.

The 3-story theater features state-of-the-art sound system, digital movie projection, stage and dressing rooms to accommodate live performances, a balcony with overhead doors equipped as A/V rooms and a third story with a large conference/board room.

The stunning neon marquee has been completely restored. It is featured in ‘Grand Old Texas Theaters That Won’t Quit’ by Joan Upton Hall and Stacey Hasbrook.

The 60+ seat Backstage Cafe opens through french doors into the theater lobby. It features faux-finished walls, 16' tin ceilings, original wood floors, an office, ADA bathroom, and stainless steel kitchen.
