"People fell in love here and a lot of their life story is here," says Weston Pyburn.
However, the theater has its own tale to tell.
"When we started peeling the layers back and it started revealing itself I was going you poor old building, says Pyburn.
Pyburn is the building's owner and he has put his heart and soul into restoring it's former glory.
"This place never got to show itself off as a theater. It was painted really beautiful and opulent and then painted over. It was built with a real positive energy, the neon, and the old building has a spirit of any kind," adds Pyburn.
That spirit caught Marc Campen's attention all the way in Virginia.
"It has quite a number of accounts of paranormal activity," says Campen.
Campen is part of a group called the Paranormal Activity Search Team, or "P.A.S.T" for short.
He and his brother in law, Fabio Beltran, conducted a paranormal investigation at the theater last month.
Campen and Beltran spent a night exploring the building from center stage to its darkest corners using special tools in hopes of illuminating the past.
Their toils didn't reveal troubled cauldron stirring witches or floating phantoms, but Campen believes they did touch on something supernatural.
"I feel that there is activity. It's not an evil type of spirit. I think its more residual spirits that are kind of caught back in time. Whatever our human spark is, the electrical energy that keeps us going or makes us exist maybe it goes somewhere and its in the atmosphere around here," adds Campen.
While it's not clear what kind of spirit resides within the Texas Theatre.
Its spooky stories will change with every person who visits there and the theater will continue to write pages in Sweetwater's history.
