PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

The historic Granada Theater in downtown Plainview has been sold to Lubbock businessman Darryl Holland. 

"I'm going to make Plainview proud," Holland said Monday afternoon in an interview for KCBD.com.

In recent years the Granada has become the victim of neglect and disuse. The current owner bought it earlier this year with plans to restore it, but he lives out of town and discovered the project was just too hard to do from a distance. 

Holland said he wants to restore the Granada to its "original splendor."  Built in the late 1920's the building is still thought of as a landmark in downtown Plainview.

Holland said his grandfather was at one time a partner in the Granada.  "Dad was a projectionist," he adds.  So, "it was family business for many decades," Holland said.

"I've been waiting for the right time," Holland said.  Now that the Granada came up for sale twice in one year, it seemed like the right time. 

Holland did not want to disclose the price he paid but when the Granada was up for bid on eBay.com last week, the bids exceeded $15,000.00.
