Previous Names: Cinematex Colonies Theatre
The Cinematex Colonies Theatre was opened on February 1, 1970 with Robert Preston in “The Music Man” and a vaudeville show. It was built and operated by San Antonio showman and media personality Tommy Reynolds. It was the last single screen theatre built in San Antonio. It was a beautiful theatre with 502 Griggs Pushback seats. It had a nice stage, and Mr. Reynolds put on some entertaining live stage shows in addition to movies.
The theatre didn’t catch on, and was kind of far out at the time and closed in 1972. Santikos Theatres reopened it on June 2, 1972, changed the name to the Colonies North Theatre, and had better success, although it never was as popular as it should have been. I was the assistant manager of the Cinematex throughout 1971. It was taken over by Movie One in 1977, but they closed it at the end of 1977.
The theatre is now part of the retail space at Colonies North Shopping Center
