DALLAS (AP) — A former Dallas neighborhood theater pounded by hail during a 2012 storm has been designated as a city landmark.

The Dallas County Council on Wednesday approved the historic designation for the Lakewood Theater, which opened in 1938.

The onetime movie theater in East Dallas drew attention in June 2012 when hail as big as baseballs pummeled parts of the city. The Lakewood marquee was smashed.

The landmark designation helps protect the original exterior of the now-closed building, which features a towering structure and brightly colored lights outlining the words “Lakewood.”

The current owners, Craig Kinney and Bill Billingham, have said they hope to market the building for businesses that could include restaurants.
