Taylor, TX: Howard Theatre Reopening Efforts Continue

Posted on Friday, July 5, 2024 1:00 PM

Opening Soon Sign

The Howard Theatre in Taylor, Texas closed in 2021, but efforts to reopen it are continuing, according to an article published recently.

The Austin Business Journal reported recently that the city approved up to $50,000 in grants to fund improvements to the Howard Theatre, which dates back to 1940 at its current location. The theater has been running fundraising efforts via crowdfunding services in hopes of collecting more than $100,000. According to an article published in November by KVUE (see below), local shop owner Channing Kingery-Boles needed $200,000 for a down payment to purchase the theater.

We wholeheartedly support the idea of local independent theaters, especially historic ones, that reflect the soul and character of their community. We hope that the results of these efforts will bear fruit, and have reached out to them to offer our services as well.

Until it opens, moviegoers in the area need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Cinemark Stone Hill Town Center in Pflugerville, and the Cinemark 14 Round Rock and the Flix Brewhouse - Round Rock in Round Rock.
