this is how I remember it when it was a dollar theater in the mid thru late 80s
Wow these are great pictures… thank you to whoever posted this!
It closed sometime in the late 80s to very early 90s.
That entrance in 1953 was at Holmes Rd and South Park Dr (now MLK Jr) according to the aerial images on Google Earth.
I want to see listings for this theater from 1981/82
It was a Plitt Cinema 5 then
I saw Enemy Mine there in 1985.
That post stood up there (minus the Cinerama sign) through at least the mid 90s. I remember seeing it there while I was working at the nightclub there in 93-94. I remember wondering what it was for.
Aww man I love this photo. Thanks for posting this
Does anyone know how much of the theater remained intact during the Hollywood Video days. The video store was not that big. I always wondered what was behind those walls
Saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1991
This theater was not demolished in 76.. I remember it standing until about 1983. It was in real bad shape. Hurricane Alicia was the final nail in the coffin. It was demolished not long after as it was heavily damaged from the storm
I remember seeing a couple of movies here. My aunt won tickets from a radio station, dont remember which one.. for the premier of Someone To Watch Over Me
Saw Christmas Vacation here in 89, as a Dollar Cinema
Saw Superman II here
I am so curious to know what this place looks like now in the theater area
Saw Gremlins in 84, Weird Science in 85, Fatal Attraction in 87 (it was a Dollar Cinema then)
.. in the 70s and 80s?
Wasn’t this an adult drive in theater?
@ JackCoursey.. No Urban Cowboy premiered at the Gaylynn at Sharpstown Mall
I saw this sign for the 45 Drive in painted over and was used for the short lived Lone Star Amphitheater on Westpark @ W Loop 610
The picture above is from about 1987. Chuck the pic in your first link is from 1984
I remember this being an adult movie theater in the 70s. It sat/sits across the street from the Weingarten shopping center on Lawndale
I remember the entrance from the feeder.. you entered under the screen which was like a tunnel and at the end you paid for your movie, then turned left or right depending on what screen your movie was on
Bowen Tools took over the site. My father in law worked there during the late 80s through the 90s
