Moderately-sized Art Moderne theatre on Camp Bowie Boulevard. The Bowie Theater was opened January 31, 1941 with Gary Cooper in “North West Mounted Police”. It was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell. Featured a fabulous vertical neon sign that could be spotted from a great distance in either direction on the Boulevard.
The Bowie Theatre closed on September 26, 1982 with “Star Trek II” & “Quest for Fire”. It was later converted into a bank, which interestingly enough, kept the Bowie marquee and nicely incorporated the Art Moderne elements into the renovation.
