Dallas Historical Society will present a happy hour to learn about the unique history of one of Dallas’ most iconic places, The Inwood Theatre.

Opened in 1947 and restored in 2005, the Inwood Theatre showcases more than amazing films. Its expansive lobby boasts an underwater-themed original mural by artist Perry Nichols, a member of the Dallas Nine, and its ceiling dances with a bevy of beautiful water nymphs. A double-aisle staircase leads to the mezzanine, where neon-lit transparent panels are etched with realistic fish and underwater foliage. Newly updated screening rooms feature leather lounge chairs, comfortable sofas and loveseats, and popular LoveSac seating. A private bar also was added, allowing patrons to purchase cocktails and soft drinks without leaving the auditorium.
The Inwood Theatre is a unique destination with a remarkable history, and new memories are made with every visit.
