The Texas Theatre, home of Palestine Community Theatre, is the crown jewel of downtown Palestine and the finest venue for live entertainment in East Texas. This historic structure, located at 213 W. Crawford St. in Palestine, Texas, is a prime example of Spanish Colonial architecture and was designed as an atmospheric movie palace when it opened in 1930. After two devastating fires, and a host of closings and re-openings, the Texas Theatre has been reborn to its new purpose: live theatre.
Over the past 35 years, the stage of the Texas has spotlighted many of our talented neighbors with productions such as “Guy’s and Dolls”, “Harvey”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “Man of La Mancha”, “Clue: The Musical” and “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”. Palestine Community Theatre strives to provide family-friendly entertainment featuring local talent, while delivering a quality of productions that is unsurpassed in the area. PCT has also made the restoration of the Texas Theatre a priority since its re-opening and lighting of the TEXAS in 2005. The theatre now awaits its Grand Re-Opening with the final phase of renovations, which will include new doors and a ticket booth, complimenting the meticulous restoration that has taken place in the lobby and auditorium.
PCT invites you to assist us in celebrating our past, securing our present, and preparing for our future. Make plans to attend our next show and see what everyone is talking about!
