The Granada 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. The Art Deco design of the Granada reflects the decadence of that Golden Era and 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. Under the current ownership of Mike Schoder and Julia Garton, the theater is still going strong hosting on average 160 concerts a year and an array of private events. Their goal is to bring local, regional and national acts to an intimate setting in order create unforgettable experiences. Many of the greats have graced the stage including Adele, Bob Dylan, David Crosby, Leon Russell and recently Willie Nelson.
