Property Description
Historic art deco movie theater in the middle of Downtown Denton Square.

The building which houses the Fine Arts Theater was built in 1890 on the location of the Denton Opera House. It was originally the location of the Magil and Shepard Furniture and Undertaking and then became home to George Morrel Furniture Store. On August 28, 1935, the Texas Theater opened and operated until 1957 when it was renamed the Fine Arts Theater. The theater closed in December 1981 and reopened in April 1982 as a second-run dollar movie theater. After a fire broke out in the up-section of the theater on October 25, 1982, the theater closed. It was used by various churches over the years since but has been vacant since 2014.
