Looks to me like this theatre was a first-class art house for much of its existence with impressive programming of international films for discerning audiences.

When I was stationed at Lackland, I visited this place to see “Murders' Row” on December 26, 1966. The theatre was barely a month old.

The decor of the auditoriums was marvelous. I was here a few times, but I especially remember going to see the French-Canadian film “Leolo” in July, 1992. Directed by the late Jean-Claude Lauzon, it had caused some minor scandal, I believe, when shown at Cannes. It had not yet opened in the U.S., so I watched it here (with no English subtitles) despite my only rudimentary knowledge of French. I was absolutely overwhelmed by it, despite my not understanding all the dialog. Today “Leolo” remains one of my favorite films of the 1990s and I consider it a masterpiece.

This photo does not belong here, since it is of the Park Square Theatre, not the Park Square Cinema. The Park Square Theatre is not listed on Cinema Treasures. The two places were NOT the same and this ad photo is deceptive. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/6438/photos/156347
