The Pines Theater

Pines Theater in Lufkin, TX

Throughout its life, the theater was the city’s entertainment center, a downtown landmark where thousands of people from the area spent an afternoon together, chasing bad guys with Roy Rogers, experiencing epics like Gone with the Wind and Giant, or watching out for a great white shark. Although there were other theaters in the downtown district, the Pines was the premiere theatre and, “The Place To Be.”

In 1981, the Pines’ last manager, Ray Pike, had the facility refurbished. These were to be the last updates to the theater until it was sold by owner Elliot Cavanaugh in 1984 to use as a house of worship for the Covenant of Love Outreach. The theater was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1988. It continued as a church until approximately 2005 and then remained vacant until 2007, when the City of Lufkin purchased the theater.

Today, the art-deco charm and beauty of the original Pines Theater has been brought back to life. Following years of community input, staff research, demolition and reconstruction, The Pines Theater is once again the focus and heart of Lufkin’s flourishing downtown district.
