The North Star Cinema was the first multiplex built in San Antonio. It opened on Christmas Day 1964. Cinema I had 958 seats and Cinema II had 526 seats. “The Sound of Music” had an 88 week run there, a still unbroken record!
I got my first job as an usher there in 1968. On the day I started Cinema II was running “2001: A Space Odyssey” in 70mm. It was the last 70mm film that North Star Cinema ran. The biggest hits always seemed to play on North Star Cinema’s screens.
In the late 1970s, Cinema I’s auditorium was split into two auditoriums. It was a poor job, and the charm the theatre once had was lost forever. It closed in 1982.
