The Americana Theatre was built by Trans Texas Theatres in the early 1960s. It was later owned by AMC Theatres. This theatre featured a huge 70mm screen and had two Norelco AA-IIs in it originally. The downfall to the theatre was AMC’s forcing Disney to give them and exclusive run on Annie, which Disney did for a required 18 week engagement. Needless to say, the rest was history as the theatre never was able to get out of the contract and eventually dug itself a big financial hole.
