Palace Theater to inaugurate summer movie series with ‘The Post’ July 7

Friday, June 29, 2018

The silver screen of Spur’s 1929 Palace Theater will once again shine with some of Hollywood’s top stars July 7, 2018, when the theater’s new digital equipment gets its first workout. The film chosen for the longawaited debut is the 2018 Academy Award–nominated historical drama


“The Post,” starring Meryl Streep as newspaper publisher Katherine Graham and Tom Hanks as Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee. Directed by Stephen Spielberg, the film depicts the historic decision of the newspaper to publish the Pentagon Papers against the backdrop of the Richard Nixon presidency, which would ultimately end in the Watergate scandal. Fittingly, the special showing will be sponsored by The Texas Spur. The movie will show at 6 p.m., and the newspaper office, next door to the theater at 424 Burlington Avenue will hold an open house following the movie with coffee, punch and cookies.
