The buyer also owns the Lynn Theater in Gonzales Texas(which had it’s grand opening March 15th 2012) along with the Edna Theater in Edna Texas(re-opens late 2012)The Granada Theater Plainview Texas(mid 2013 opening).

I stopped by the Pioneer today as they were gutting the place. I thought about trying to scam some seats but they in pretty bad shape. Talked to the new owner who said that he is redoing the whole thing with digital projection. Said it would take a year for the resto with new neon and the old graphics. He also said he bought the Rig Theater in Premont.

Interesting. I went through Falfurrias about 3 weeks ago and there does seem to be some work in progress on the Pioneer. I’m glad to see it. Could digital projection bring costs down enough that some of these old theaters could become viable businesses again?

Only if the theatre owners have the thousands of dollars to convert. It’s very costly.
