Located in the Croley Building and operated by Rosa Croley. The Crystal Theatre opened on December 2 1920 with Tom Mix in “The Untamed” and Billy Franey in “The Paper Hanger”. In 1925, Cranfill H. Cox bought the theatre operating it for the next 40 years. The downtown theatre proved flexible moving from silent film to sound initially with the DeForrest Phonofilm system to talkies to 3D films to widescreen presentations.

On July 23, 1965, just months after celebrating its 45th anniversary, the theatre burned down hours after the final showings of Disney’s “Savage Sam” and “Monkey’s Uncle”. The remaining wall of the Crystal Theatre was torn down.
