THE BORDER THEATER was completed in 1942 and is a fine example of a mid-20th century motion picture theater. The walls are adorned by southwestern images of desert and cactus resembling a border town, hence the name. Designed for up to 740 patrons, opening night featured the Roy Rogers movie “Heart of the Rio Grande.” In 1995 the new owners began the restoration to preserve the building to its original condition. This historical landmark, located in downtown Mission, continues to enhance the quality of life by showcasing feature films to the Mission community. (956) 585-4122

THE TOM LANDRY MURAL, painted on a downtown building on Tom Landry Street and Conway Avenue by Mission artist Manuel Hinojosa, depicts the life of the legendary coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Tom Landry was born and raised in Mission where his football fame was initiated as quarterback of the local high school team. Tom Landry went on to be the most recognized coach in the history of the NFL, as he posted an impressive string of 20 consecutive winning seasons. Just below the mural, Coach Landry’s foot and hand prints are found along with those of cowboy legends such as Tony Dorsett and Ed “Too Tall” Jones.
