A 70-year-old former movie theater in Central Texas is getting a new look and name.
The building on the south side of the San Marcos courthouse square will reopen March 9 as the Texas Music Theater.
The Austin American-Statesman reported Monday that the $2.3 million venue will feature a state-of-the-art concert hall and club.
Co-owner Allen Shy says Texas musician Cory Morrow will be featured on opening night at the complex, which can hold about 1,000 patrons.
