This informative site has a photo and information on the Arcadia. I could do without the music, though.

The September 8, 1928, issue of Motion Picture Times said that the Arcadia Theatre in Ranger had opened on August 24. The article featured one photo, and said that the new house, operated by Dent Theatres, had a Reuter organ.

Motion Picture Herald, March 29, 1952: “Fire destroyed the 900-seat Arcadia theatre, Ranger, Texas, shortly before it was to open its doors. B. E. Garner, owner, said it apparently began in an air-conditioning unit and swept along the ceiling to the front of the building. Mr. Garner said the $150,000 building was a total loss.”
