The theater re-opened for events in March, 2011. On September 22, 2011 they had a “Marquee Partee” open house to celebrate the completion of newly installed neon lighting on the theater canopy and turned on the exterior lights for the first time. Photos of the exterior and interior from the event, as well as earlier (pre-restoration) photos can be seen here:

One plus on the renovation is they are removing the oversized screen that blocked the view of the theater curtain and proscenium arch.

This is a link to my set of photos on the Aztec:

They are planning to re-open as a live music venue presenting a Branson-style classic country music revenue “San Antonio Rose Live” headlined (at least initially) by Darrell McCall. Tickets are anticpated to be priced from $30-$50 and appeal to tourists. They will also make it available for TV and video production.

Interestingly enough, I understand that one of the major donors to the 1983 restoration of this theater was RepublicBank, the same bank that demolished all but the facade of the 1926 Texas Theater in San Antonio that same year.
