Martin Theatre

A conversion of a retail building, the Martin Theatre opened on December 13, 1913. In the early-1930’s it was renamed Titus Theatre. In 1935 it went back to its Martin Theatre name. It was rebuilt and reopened on September 10, 1937 with Jane Withers in “Wild and Woolly”, operated by the Lutzer Brothers. It was later taken over by Robb Rowley-United Inc. and by 1957 was operated by Rowley United Theatres Inc. Last operated by United Artists.

In recent years it became the Pleasant Jamboree, where live country music was presented on weekends. By November 2017 it had become a church.

J.E. Martin purchased this retail building in 1910 and converted from retail to motion picture theatre on December 13, 1913. Two owners later, new operators East Texas Amusement changed the name of the theatre to the Titus Theatre, the name of Mt. Pleasant’s county. In 1935, the Lutzer Brothers changed the name back to the Martin. They would then demolish all but two walls of the theatre creating a new Martin Theatre relaunching

The new Martin Theatre launched September 10, 1937 with the film “Wild and Wooly.” The local newspaper had a 24-page special edition to commemorate the new Martin.
