This is a lovely old theatre and the 7th in a long history of Mineola venues which date back from 1886. The theatre was named for Select Picture which was a Texas motion picture franchise. Mrs Hooks, and her husband, who named the theatre in 1920, operated the venue for many years before it was remodelled in 1948 and features such as a sloping floor and elevated stage were added. The new neon tower which stood 24ft above the ground could be seen for miles. From 1961 to 1986 the theatre was run by two long time employees when a theatre company then took over the operation. The building has been given a State Historical Marker.
The Lake County Playhouse is also headquartered here and offers live productions in the theatre usually one weekend each month.
