Street View still shows the building to be there, but googling the address doesn’t bring up any businesses there.

According to the Schulman Theater website, this venue is at least as old as 1926. Burned in fire set by a vagrant in 1983, as can be seen from linked photos.

Remodeled in early 1990’s by Downtown Bryan developer and visionary Reid Monroe. Re-opened as The Stafford Opera House, probably aquired that name from the Stafford Opera House in Columbus, TX. Operated again as Dixie Theatre from 1995-1998.
Known as The Venue during the mid-2000’s.

Since 2007 has been open as The Stafford – Main Street.
