It was last month when we first told you about the campaign to save the historical Texan movie theater in Cleveland, Texas.
Well, I’m glad to report to you those who are spearheading the effort to keep the movie house doors open are half way to their goal of $86,000.

The Texan has been around since the 1930’s and it operates off a film based projection system.

But by 2013 movies will only be distributed in the digital format.

That has left the owner of the Texan, Cliff Dunn, hustling to raise the money to keep the theater alive with an updated projection system.

So far there has been a dinner that raised $40,000 and this weekend the drive continues with a silent and live auction that’s open to the public.

The event will be held this Saturday December 1st at 5 pm at the Texan Theater in downtown Cleveland.

If you’re interested and would like more information call Carolyn McWaters at 281-593-8215 or Bob Steely at 281-622-7106.

    I went there as a very young boy. It was called The Texas Theatre back then. I`m now 65 yrs young.

    This theater was a part of my childhood. Even though I currently live in Las Vegas, the entertainment capitol of the world, I still make it a point of visiting the Texan every time I am in Cleveland. Too much of our history is being lost to technology, don,t let this icon of a more innocent time be lost.
