This was one of Loews trademark circa 1970s underground cinemas. Landmark took over management of the theatre in the early 1990s. The entire shopping plaza is scheduled to be razed in 2005.

I worked at the Saks in the early/mid 90’s. I was working for Landmark and spent much of my early employment there at the River Oaks on West Gray…but when shifts became open at the Saks, I jumped on it and worked the majority of my time there…till I left that job. Loved it…it really hqad an ambiance…youd enter through a lobby and in front of you were LONG escalators that went down in to the lower level lobby. Painted on the walls were huge murals of Hollywood heroes…Gable, Theda Bara, John Wayne, Harold Lloyd, etc. I still remember an overnite employee-and-friends-of-employees-only screening of PULP FICTION one night at 3 AM…2 days before the movie was to open. I miss that place…I wonder if it’s still standing?

The Saks opened on July 24, 1974, and was originally called the Loews Twin in Saks Center. Opening days ads announced, “Boy, have we got a theatre for you!” The premier features were Charles Bronson’s “Death Wish” and Warren Oates' “The White Dawn”.

You’re welcome. Not all theaters go my way, but I do try.

Another Houston theater I loved going to. Saw “Mame” and “Funny Lady” here among others.
