The grand opening of the Mulkey Theatre is just two weeks away, and workers are busy putting the finishing touches on the project to make it show ready on Saturday, May 25.

Tickets for the gala opening event will go on sale to the general public next Tuesday, May 14, for $50 each and a full evening of entertainment is being lined up.

In addition to a red carpet entrance and food and refreshments, organizers have planned a program to take attendees back in time to the opening of the 1946 theatre while also demonstrating the theatre’s new capabilities.

The Mulkey’s first live musical performance will be the South Plains Jazz Orchestra playing big band hits from the 1940s, and the artistic director from the outdoor musical “TEXAS” is preparing a live theatre act to follow the band.

The featured motion picture presentation for the grand opening will be a 1946 John Wayne and Claudette Colbert movie, “Without Reservations.”

Tickets for the May 25 grand opening must be purchased in advance of the show and are expected to sell out quickly.
Following Saturday night’s grand opening, the Mulkey will hold four free admission matinees on Sunday, May 27, and Monday, May 28. Two movies will be shown each afternoon with no admission charge on a first come, first served basis.

Stay All Night! Stay A Little Longer!
