Here is a December 2008 artiole from the Belton Journal:

I was a soldier stationed at nearby Fort Hood in 1968 and 1969. Twice I visited the Beltonian Theater. On one occasion to see the film “The Graduate” and the second occasion was on an insufferably hot late summer Texas Saturday afternoon. The film was Walt Disney’s “Rascal.” I seem to remember there being no air-conditioning in the Beltonian and the rear doors to the auditorium were left open during the screening. The only other patrons beside myself that afternoon were a woman and a small child. The theater chairs had wooden backs and the seats were lumpy. A totally enjoyable and memorable experience in that wonderful old theater.
