Americana-WEB250-sign-onlyDid you know that the Yarborough Branch was once a movie theater? It opened as The Americana, a state-of-the-art theater, in April 1965. When it closed in April 1987, it was the last single-screen theater in Austin. The building reopened as the Yarborough Library in January 1999.

Enjoy the movie!
