I recently visited Bridgeport, TX on business and learned of 2 theaters in town. I took pictures, but the folks I talked to didn't know the names. One is now a little store, but still has the ticket booth. The other is directly across the street and has had a new facade addeded and is now a fine arts center. Anyone have any insight as to the names of these cinemas? The one in the CinemaTour database is the National Theater, but I don't know which one it corresponds to.

Hmm. Well I have pictures of both. The stucco looking theater features a recently added facade.

The fine arts center (mystery #2) is actually called the Fine Arts Theater. There is currently debate over whether or not to change its name to the Stagecoach Theatre. It was originally a movie theatre called the Arcadia Theatre which is listed in the 1958 FDY as having 288 seats. It is at 1009 Halsell Street.
