The year was 1935 when the small-town community of Highland Park Village fell in love. It’s a romance that has lasted 83 years with a movie theater.
The Village Theatre. A true landmark that’s located in the Highland Park Shopping Village.
The Village Theatre originally cost over $100,000 to build and was considered to be the first luxury suburban theater in Texas, beautifully crafted in a “Spanish architectural style” with terrazzo floors and leather panels. When its heavy oak doors originally opened, moviegoers were awed by its 1,350 seats, four movie screens, and murals carefully painted by Reveau Bassett that hung in the lobby and told the history of Texas.
Today, only the front of the theater remains in its original form, but the air of romance that the theater once encompassed still beats in the hearts of many longtime residents.
One of the original murals from the theater can now be seen hanging at the Texas Cable News headquarters.
The theater is currently operated by AMC and boasts three digital projection movie screens, two private screening rooms, a bar and more than 500 stadium seats that call it home. So if you’re visiting Dallas for the Verint Global Customer Conference and decide to catch a movie, why not get romanced by an 83-year-old movie theater that just might have you saying “I do.”
