Title: Waiting for the Show
Comments: It seems that small-town Texas movie theaters have one of two destinies: either they go belly-up, "Last Picture Show" style, or they find an investor, get refurbished, hang on, and compete with the big city megaplexes. There seems to be no in-between. The Cole Theater is an example of the second type: it still retains its vintage looks on the outside but has been retrofitted on the inside, offering a state-of-the-art movie experience in an old cinema setting. I have a nostalgia for the old theaters, of course, so I'm always glad to find one that has managed to remain in business.
