The Grand Theater is on Fort Worth’s east side was a neat old red brick neighborhood theatre which opened in May 1938. It was closed in 1981. This survivor’s neat old sign is still displayed, even though it was used as a church building. It was vacant by 2021.

The Grand Theatre was built for African-American audiences. Boxoffice of June 25, 1938, said the house had opened on May 11. It was designed by Raymond F. Smith for the Community Amusement Company.

Bids were received for construction of a another new African American theater, seating 500, for the Bijou Amusement Company, on June 7. The magazine didn’t give the name of this second Fort Worth project.
