The famous Select Theater is one of the oldest, continuously operating theaters in Texas. Opened as a movie house in 1920 by Mr. and Mrs. R.T. Hooks, the building retains much of its historical style.
A group of actors determined to bring live theater to the area formed the Lake Country Playhouse in 1978. They purchased the Theater in '93, ensuring that Mineola would continue to have a movie theater and a venue for live theatrical and musical productions.
The Playhouse produces four live plays each year, one in each season, and shows first -run movies each weekend.
The Theater is also home to the Lake Country Symphonic Band (formally the Wood County Orchestra), which presents four scheduled performances during the year.
