Dallas-based filmmaker Barak Epstein announced today on Twitter that his new company, Aviation Cinemas, is taking over operations of the Texas Theatre.

A message on the Texas Theatre’s website says the historic theater is undergoing renovations and will reopen with showings in October.

We rang Epstein this morning, but he hasn’t called back yet. The 31-year-old is a writer, director, producer and actor, mostly for independent films, many of which are filmed and produced entirely in Dallas.
