The Edna Theatre has sat vacant for over four decades. Although it remains structurally sound, it is in need of critical repairs. On August 19, 2022, The Texana Arts Council, a local non-profit, purchased the theatre with the intent of restoring it to its former glory so it can once again be used and enjoyed by the public.
