The original Park Theatre was located in the Park Theatre Building at 424 N. Central across the street from the Grand Central Theater. Deep Ellum had become home to African Americans and immigrants at the end of the 19th Century and into the 20th Century. Black-owned business activity occurred along Central Avenue beside the railroad tracks. The Park had traveling African American acts, local acts and movies, as well. But when the businesses, railroad tracks, and that portion of Central Avenue were reworked as the city modernized its highways through downtown, the African American businesses were uprooted. The new Park Theatre headed southward locating at 4831 Spring Avenue and became primarily a film exhibition location with live shows in the mix.

Well, sad to say that the PARK Theatre has been demolished! Went by there back in December and there was a company removing the Abestos. One of the guys told me it was gutted and it had been used as a Cleaners.. Then, sometime in January, the Theatre was razed. Only the Foundation remains……

Chuck, recheck that photo page of Randy’s – are you still getting anything? I just get empty picture frames. I used to spend hours, uh, make that minutes, on that page of his.
