W.E. Scott Theatre

You are here Home  > Theaters >  W.E. Scott Theatre

The W.E. Scott Theatre was built in 1966 with funds left by William Edrington Scott, who died of lung cancer, to benefit Fort Worth’s culture. W.E. Scott himself is believed to be one of the ghosts who haunt the theater. He has been known to straighten his portraits when they were hanging crookedly due to street vibrations. Another theater ghost is Kenneth Walker Yandle, who was an actor working here as a stage hand from 1967 to 1970. Kenny hanged himself in the prop room in the dungeon on January 7, 1970, depressed because of a breakup with his former girlfriend. He appears in a brown suit, walking across the stage, and folks have heard the sound of his laughter under the stage.

  1. I want to say thank you. I practically grew up at the Scott Theater and I saw many things like this and always felt and saw and heard weird things. This explains a ton. I’m going back there this summer for a summer camp with Kids Who Care. I’ve really gotten into the whole “supernatural” thing lately but i never believed what I saw when I was a kid (even though it was only like three years ago) Like i said, this explains a lot.
    Thanks again

  2. My girlfriend and I went to visit this theater a couple of years ago. We sat in the third row and we started making out. This lasted the whole time we were there so I missed out on any “scary” things that should have happened. I did hear a voice yell something in Spanish several times while I was making out with my girlfriend. It said,” Metale,por atras,Metale por atras!” I thought it was perhaps one of the ghosts,but after further investigation, it turned out to be a dirty,old janitor who was watching us.Isn’t that sceery?
