FREE Parking: on the street (after 4PM) or at the Bank Of Texas lot in front of the theatre. *** The Texas Theatre is a historic movie theatre that also hosts concerts, events, and theatrical productions. When first opened in 1931, the Texas Theatre was the largest suburban movie theater in Dallas and was part of a chain of theaters once owned by Howard Hughes. Following its closure in 1989, the Texas Theatre Historical Society (TTHS) bought the theater in 1990. Acknowledging its importance to the President’s assassination, TTHS allowed Oliver Stone to remodel the exterior façade for his 1990 film, JFK. However in 1992, the Society was no longer able to make the mortgage payments and the theater closed once more. Shortly thereafter, former usher and sign changer Don Dubois of Texas Rosewin-Midway Properties saved the theater from the wrecking ball. Nevertheless, two years later in 1995, it was nearly destroyed by a five-alarm fire, forcing the doors shut yet again. In 1996, Pedro Villa rescued the theater from demolition when he learned of plans to convert it into a furniture warehouse. However, as Villa’s resources were exhausted and his pleas for investments went unheard, the theater defaulted back to Texas Rosewin-Midway Properties. The tattered and torn building remained vacant for three years, succumbing to vandals, stray animals, and hostile weather. In August of 2010, Aviation Cinemas Inc (a reference to Howard Hughes, the theater's original owner) consisting of Partners Barak Epstein, Adam Donaghey, Jason Reimer and Eric Steele, signed a lease to own and operate the theater.
