Dallas Cinema

Rebecca Ziegler of Adaptive Preservation LLC in Albany spoke in favor of nominating the Dallas Cinema to the National Register of Historic Places during a state committee Zoom meeting in late June.

When it opened in 1948, inside a converted furniture building on Dallas’ Southeast Mill Street, the Rio Theater brought Hollywood glitz and glamour to the small Willamette Valley town.

More than 70 years later, the renamed Dallas Cinema could be headed for a place in national history.
