OverviewGranada Theater is located in Lower Greenville, in Dallas, TX.The theater was built in 1946 as a movie house. In 1977 it was converted to a concert hall, only to revert to a movie theatre soon after. In 2004 it was again opened as a concert hall.Throughout the years Granada Theater has also won many awards: Best Live Music Venue: 2007, Dallas Observer AwardsBest Live Music Venue: 2008, Dallas Observer AwardsBest Live Music Venue: 2009, Dallas Observer AwardsBest Live Music Venue: 2010, Dallas Observer AwardsTop 10 Cultural Destinations: 2008, Modern Luxury Dallas, Best of the CityNightlife Winner: 2007, Best of City SearchBest Live Music Venue: 2011, D Magazine Best of Big DDesignThe Art Deco design of the Granada reflects the decadence of that Golden Era. The exterior was designed for function with rounded corners, stepped forms and linear accents that echoed the industrialized, streamlined designs of modern machinery, like automobiles. The interior decor employs the influence of ancient cultures. The murals were designed by the artist(s) who also worked on Los Angeles’ famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. The grand scale murals depict different genres of film with the ceiling feature depicting a mythological “film goddess” standing over a reel of film. Fitting, since the Greeks gave us theater. The sunburst crowning the goddess and the curved plaster moldings lining the sidewalls point to another Deco theme – designs taken from nature. The neighborhood theater was family friendly providing soundproof rooms available for others. Archives stated the theater was predominantly dark red and the original front doors were made of wood.
