Though not a palace, the Shannon 8 was a nice place to see a movie. At least people behaved during the movies unlike its Southlake counterpart.

One evening, a friend and I went and saw “Flowers In The Attic” then sneaked over and saw “Nuts” at an auditorium on the other end of the theater.

The Theather opened up in the fall of'84. I saw alot of good movie there. It closed in 2000. Now boarded up. Sad.
