With a great deal of local assistance, the BPATA proceeded with cleanup and renovation of the Brauntex Theatre. The theatre reopened in August 2000; and, in 2008, the Texas Historical Commission awarded the Brauntex a spot in the National Register of Historic Places. We are fortunate to have our Brauntex Movie Theatre… renovated and recycled into what is now known as the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre – the jewel of historic downtown New Braunfels.
