In 1940, the Isley Circuit raced with the Johnny G. Long Theatre Circuit – which already had the Queen – to open a new theatre in Palacios as a new Army training camp was about to open. Isley opened the Granada Theatre on November 27, 1940 with “Newsboys' Home”starring Jackie Cooper. A day later, Long would launch the Capitol Theatre. Long took over the Granada and refurbished the Queen as the Hollywood to have a local monopoly in film exhibition.
