This information comes from the Starlight Theatre website. The Starlight Theatre opened in the 1930’s as the Chisos Theater. Movies were shown at the Chisos Theater until it closed in the late 1940’s. In 1991 the building was given a “face lift” and re-opened as the Starlight Theatre Restaurant and Bar.

Its the Terlingua Ghost Town. Since they installed the Bar, it now has “spirits”. LOL

My buddies and I would go to the Hitching Post every Saturday morning during the late 40’s and very early 50’s. They showed nothing but “B” Westerns and weekly Serials. I remember they had a sign stating “Check Your Guns At the Box Office” And of course the only attendee’s were very preteen boys. I was raised in Santa Monica and have many fond memories of some of the theatres found on this site. Just found the site today and plan on spending many enjoyable hours here!
