Dyess Air Force Base Movie Theatre, Abilene, Texas

ProfileThe Dyess Movie Theater was originally constructed in 1959 and had not been renovated since 1972. The theater recently reopened after a two-year closure and multi-million dollar upgrade. "After taking a look at this newly remodeled base theater you will come to realize how much work was put into this project and how this theater is light years ahead of the downtown competition through not only technology but amenities," said Col. James E. Murray, 7th Mission Support Group commander.

The theater's new features include the addition of a 2,800 SF lobby, as well as the renovation of the existing auditorium floor, seating for 625 people, roof, restrooms, and concession area. The Army and Air Force Exchange Service contributed more than $100,000, which included the screen, concessions, and the sound system.
