The Texas Theatre opened on April 21, 1931 with the Buster Keaton film Parlor, Bedroom and Bath. Now 90 years later, they will present the same comedy classic as part of a special program to celebrate the theater's 90th birthday and unveil special sneak previews of the major balcony & 2nd floor construction upgrades that have been in the works since December 2020.

In recent years, Aviation Cinemas - the operator owners of the space - undertook the addition of a second full size screen to the balcony and a premiere VIP section for the main auditorium. As an additional way for Texas Theatre patrons to support the project, the theater is offering limited custom seat nameplates which will be installed permanently in the new auditorium and balcony seating for the main auditorium.

The 90th birthday program will begin with newsreels and cartoons of the era projected on 16mm just as they did on opening day in 1931. Admission back then was .35 cents, and they are honoring the spirit of that admission price with a few special offers:

  • General Admission: $3.50 – Downstairs regular seating. Only 60 to be sold.
  • VIP: $35 – Movie Admission + a Preview VIP Tour of the new balcony work-in-progress + a printed replica of the April 21, 1931 Texas Theatre Program. Only 60 to be sold.
  • VIP Plaque: $350 – Movie Admission + a Preview VIP Tour of the new balcony work-in-progress + a printed replica of the April 21, 1931 Texas Theatre Program + a reservation for a plaque that will be permanently mounted on a seat in the new balcony auditorium.
