Boxoffice of July 11, 1953, announced that the Texan Theatre at Nacogdoches had been closed. Long operated by East Texas Theatres, the house had originally opened in 1928 as the Austin Theatre. It was being mentioned as the Texan in Boxoffice at least as early as 1938.

The Texan was being remodeled and would be reopened as a first-run house by H&H Enterprises, according to Boxoffice of May 1, 1954. This item mentioned 300 seats being installed. An April 23, 1955, Boxoffice item said that a 200-seat balcony for Negro patrons would be installed at the Texan. I haven’t found the Texan mentioned after that.
