Just Plain Fun!!

The Community
– Temple and Killeen, TX
Temple and Killeen are located in Central Texas.

The area continues to see unprecedented growth in its business sector.

This growth has caused a ripple effect in the quantity and quality of entertainment, dining and shopping venues available in and around Temple.

During the past year, Temple has experienced this ripple effect in many areas.

The Premiere Cinema 12 expanded its 12-screen theater to 16 screens, the Czech Heritage Museum relocated from inside the SPJST insurance Co.

into it’s current building, a larger building on the corner of French and 3rd Street; and the Temple Civic Theatre combined efforts with Temple College so that performances could be seen in the larger Temple College Performing Arts Center.

These are just a few examples of the recent growth that is sure to continue.

Killeen is directly adjacent to the main cantonment of Fort Hood, and as such its economy heavily depends on the post and the soldiers (and their families) stationed there.
