Village Theater

The Strand Theater was opened by 1936. By 1939 it had been renamed Village Theater. It was still open in 1957. Former home of the Village Theater & currently (2019) in retail use this small red brick building is basically unrecognizable as ever having housed a movie theater.

This item is from the January 9, 1939 issue of Boxoffice:

“McNatt Buys Village

“Naples, Tex. — W. W. McNatt, owner of the Inez Theatre here and the Morris at Daingerfield, has purchased, with his son-in-law, W. O. Irwin jr,, the Village Theatre at Hughes Springs from Frank Keasler.”

The January 15, 1938 issue of The Film Daily said that the Strand Theatre in Hughes Springs had been transferred to J. M. Stacey. I’ve been unable to discover if the Strand was another theater or an earlier name of the Village. There was a movie theater at Hughes Springs at least as early as 1921. It was mentioned in a July issue of Motion Picture News, but the item didn’t give the name of the house.
