The Village Theatre

In 1934, Karl Hoblitzelle set out to build his first-ever luxury suburban theatre. While the façade was designed to perfectly complement the center’s Spanish architecture, a spire was created to represent a Moorish tent. Boasting 1,350 seats with hand-painted murals depicting the history of Texas, the interior exuded extravagance with textiles like the terrazzo floor and heavy oak doors. Eight decades and counting, the theatre is still showing the most acclaimed films for all generations to enjoy, and remains an integral part of our community.
