So the SAPL has this new “Twin Screen Suburban Outdoor Theater” at Loop 13 and Highway 90 East opening October 4, 1956. I couldn’t remember it but after checking old newspapers, it has to be the Towne Twin. Same address. I didn’t see any mention of Towne Twin until 1957.

I’m not sure where saheaters.com got the timeline from but the San Antonio Light has the Towne Twin as early as Sept. of 1957. That’s just in the Movie Listing pages. I didn’t find an earlier article on it’s opening.
