Cliftex Theatre

Cliftex Theatre, Clifton, TX

306 West 5th St, Clifton

The Cliftex is Texas' oldest, continuously operating movie theatre. In business since 1916, the theatre was completely restored in 2008.

Today, first run movies are shown weekly from Thursday through Sunday, using modern digital projection equipment. But until 2011, film projectors dating back to the 1930's and 1940's were still in use. One of these projectors remains in the booth today, as a reminder of the past history of the theatre.

Historically, intermission was necessary for a 35 mm reel film change. These breaks are no longer necessary with modern digital equipment, but the theatre continues to honor this long-standing cinema tradition. The classic intermission jingle, "Let's All Go to the Lobby," is often played during Cliftex movies.
