The Al Ray Theatre was located at 5006 Fulton Street, a block or two north of Calvacade Street. It, along with the Village and Plaza/Vogue, showed foreign films in the 1960’s. It became an adult theatre for a while in the 1970’s and the building was used as a church for a while in the 1990’s.

It has since been demolished.

David Welling’s book “Cinema Houston” mentions the Al Ray and notes that the building has been demolished.

The theater and the entire block was demolished – and replaced with a large luxury home completely out of place in my working-class neighborhood.

Onece they ran a Rudolph Valentino film. Some how they got hold of a nitrate print. The print caught fire and damaged the booth. I saw the damage. Not pretty.
