Film Daily Yearbook, 1950 gives a seating capacity of 751. In the 1943 F.D.Y. (with 800 seats) it is shown as being operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through a subsidiary Joe Cooper.

Was unable to locate the Bluebonnet a couple of years ago when I was in the Houston area. It appears to have been demolished some years ago.

I remember this theater during the late 1940’s. They ran all the B westerns from Republic, Columbia, PRC, Monogram etc every Saturday as I recall. They were always double features. What a blast.
