The Texan Theatre building appears to be still standing on Frank Avenue, its front covered in weathered, vertical wood siding of the sort that was fashionable for a while in the 1970s. Across the street from the Texas building is a jail, and a mural on the wall facing the street includes a view of the Texas Theatre as it once looked. The jail itself is built partly on the site of another Lufkin movie house, the Lynn Theatre.

The Texan Theatre was located at 111 E. Dozier Avenue(now Frank Street). In 1937 it was operated by L M Threet, and later by East Texas Theatre Inc. As of 1947, there was also a Texan sandwich shop and Texan drug store nearby, at 114 E Dozier and 110 E Dozier respectively.
