Royal Theater...Laredo Texas

The Royal Theatre was opened prior to 1914. In the mid-1970’s the Royal Theatre was a Spanish-language movie theater. The entrance and ticket booth were sheltered by an arched overhang. Above the entrance “Royal” was spelled out in large white letters and accented with light bulbs.

Thanks for posting those pics Don and Lost Memory. Does anyone have pics of the Tivoli that was up the street from the Plaza? I recall seeing “Mary Poppins” at one of those theatres during out annual summer trips to Laredo from Chicago.

Are the rumors true did an old man really die of fright in summer of 1965 watching the rider of the skulls at the royal. I read an article about it online. Have a nice day.
