Where Was This Picture Taken – Patterson’s Pixels [VIDEO]
Within this place, magic happens. Where is it? Take your best guess in today’s edition of Patterson’s Pixels!
If you guessed that this was the main stage of the Perot Theatre, then you were correct! This dazzling entertainment venue has been called the crowned jewel of Texarkana’s arts community.
When it opened in 1924, it was the Saenger Amusement Company’s “Gateway to the West” theatre. It was restored by the City of Texarkana, Texas between 1979 and 1980, and much of the funds for the project were donated by H. Ross Perot in memory of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gabriel Ross Perot. Hence, the theatre was renamed the Perot Theatre by the Texarkana, Texas City Council.
Now returned to its former glory, the theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This season at the Perot, you’ll get the chance to watch Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the Moscow Festival Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty, the inspiring true story of The Miracle Worker, and the weird and wonderful story of The Addams Family. Whatever your taste in entertainment, the world class entertainment that arrives at the Perot Theatre is always magical. See the complete list of upcoming series events here.
