Architecture in Fort Worth

Grand Theater

1100 Fabons St. - 1938


This red brick single screen movie theater was built in 1938 in the heart of a once thriving neighborhood. The street frontage along Fabons features small storefronts, which have been altered closed and a wall with large stones has been placed in front. The auditorium sits behind the small shops. The building's original sign is still in place. The building was designed by Raymond F. Smith for the Community Amusement Company. The building now houses 619 Productions, a charitable arts organization. Their mission is to establish artistic and economic outlets by providing free and low cost quality art programs for children, adults and seniors.
