Bring friends and join Dallas Historical Society at Inwood Theatre Lounge to hear the exceptional history of this iconic theater (with some very funny stories) and help us celebrate North Texas Giving Day to raise money for Dallas Historical Society! Let’s give together!
Event is FREE to attend; attendees are responsible for their food and drink purchases.
The Inwood Theatre is a Dallas legend. Movie buffs praise its distinctive selection of foreign and independent films. Locals love its eclectic Midnight Movie showings featuring cult classics. And art enthusiasts adore its Old Hollywood feel, landmark art deco architecture and beautifully painted murals. Whatever your reason for visiting The Inwood Theater, you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience.
Opened in 1947 and restored in 2005, the Inwood Theatre showcases more than amazing films. Its expansive lobby boasts an underwater-themed original mural by artist Perry Nichols, a member of the Dallas Nine, and its ceiling dances with a bevy of beautiful water nymphs. A double-aisle staircase leads to the mezzanine, where neon-lit transparent panels are etched with realistic fish and underwater foliage. Newly updated screening rooms feature leather lounge chairs, comfortable sofas and loveseats, and popular LoveSac seating. A private bar also was added, allowing patrons to purchase cocktails and soft drinks without leaving the auditorium.
The Inwood Theatre is a unique destination with a remarkable history, and new memories are made with every visit.
Come sip, socialize, help support a local business and deserving nonprofit, and "drink in" local history.
