The Texas Theatre opened on San Jacinto Day, April 21, 1931. The Texas Theatre was the novelty of “Uncle Mack”, a longtime Oak Cliff resident and entrepreneur. His dream was to build a theater with state-of-the-art projection and sound equipment. In 2001, a non-profit 501(3)c — the Oak Cliff Foundation — purchased the building and renovated and upgraded it. The Texas Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. After rebranding and holding a series of curated free screenings, The OCF was approached by Barak Epstein with a plan to reopen the theater into a fully functioning cinema and events center. The new operations began via a grand re-opening in Fall 2010. In 2019, The Aviation team acquired the property from the Oak Cliff Foundation to continue restoring and updating the Theatre. Today, it proudly shows blockbuster hits and films you won’t see anywhere else.
