TRANSFORMATIVE!: TEXAS THEATER TO BECOME MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT VENUE

The historic Texas Theater’s main auditorium is going to be transformed into a major music and entertainment venue in the future thanks to three local investors. This is how the theater looks today, but plans are to make this a glorious edifice and legacy for generations. Photo by Terry Fitzwater

The last time I was inside this theater was in 1970 to see the movie, Love Story with Ali MacGraw, Ryan O'Neal.

What an awesome project being restored etc.

I would highly suggest that someone within your team consider asking actress Eva Longoria to get involved and/or at least make a cameo appearance on opening date (??)...Afterall, she did attend Texas A&M University Kingsville.

This is such great news for Kingsville. We live in San Antonio and both graduated from what was then Texas A&I in 1975.

This is such great news for Kingsville! The downtown area has great potential for things such as this. We are both 1975 graduates of what was then Texas A&I and are so glad to see this taking place.
