Cliftex Theatre

The Cliftex Theatre is the oldest, continuously operating movie theater in Texas. It is the only remaining of Clifton’s three theaters founded by D.C. Caraway in the early 1900s. The Cliftex has been entertaining moviegoers in downtown Clifton since 1916.

A total restoration was completed in December 2008, bringing back many of the features of the Cliftex in 1935. Historical memorabilia, furniture, and equipment are featured throughout the venue. In April 2011 the projection booth was upgraded to digital projection and now provides Cliftex movie goers with a crystal clear, first-class movie experience.

For almost 100 years the Cliftex Theatre has been a primary source of entertainment for Bosque County residents. Many Cliftex patrons today saw their very first movie at theater many years ago, and it’s not unusual now for three or four generations from the same family to enjoy a movie together there.
The Cliftex features first-run movies, classics, and film fests. Show times are Thursday – Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m. The theatre is also available for rentals for parties and private viewings.
