The man who leased from the city both The Texan and Crim theaters said he will first concentrate renovation efforts on The Texan.

“We’re going to put a hold for the time being on the Crim,” he recently told Kilgore City Council. “I’m going to put all my efforts toward the Texan, because it’s a lot closer to something happening there than the Crim.”

Herron signed a lease agreement with the city on both theaters in May 2013. He is working with the Main Street Advisory Board on strategies for both renovation projects.
