Attraction details
Owner description: The beautiful restored Perot Theatre, located in downtown Texarkana at 3rd and Main St, has been a landmark since 1924 when it opened as the Saenger Amusement Company's "Gateway to the Southwest" theatre. Fully restored by the City of Texarkana, TX in 1979-80, the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Texarkana natives, H. Ross Perot and his sister Bette, through the Perot Foundation, contributed much of the restoration costs in memory of his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel Ross Perot. In recognition of this contribution, the Texarkana, TX City Council renamed the building - The Perot Theatre. The theatre annually hosts the Perot Theatre Series, as well as numerous rentals throughout the year. The Perot Theatre is owned by the City of Texarkana, TX and the Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council is contracted to program and manage the theatre.

Thanks to Riss Perot, Texarkana native, the theater that once was the downtown movie house has been refurbished to artistic grandeur. A splendid lineup of traveling troupes feeds the local yen for culture - plays, musicals, bands, children’s programs, ballet, in addition to the Texarkana Symphony Season and Regional Music Heritage Celebration.

I’ve been to Perot many times over the years. The Perot is a focal point of Texarkana with it’s ornate architecture. Great care has been given to this historical building so that all may enjoy it. The Perot has been home to musicals, plays, Queen contests and many performing arts. It has been one of the greatest assets to the community.
