Big Bend History: Granada Theater, West Holland Ave., Alpine, TX, in 1979

OK Theatres opened the Granada Theatre on December 25, 1929, with a seating capacity of 1,000 as noted in the 1945 Film Daily Yearbook. Alpine had other movie theaters, such as the Cactus Theatre and the Mojave Theatre (also known as the Texas Theatre), but the Granada Theatre was the largest. Despite its significance, the Granada Theatre remained closed for several years until it was eventually reopened in 2014.
