The Mayan Palace 14 began as a two-screen house called the Century South Theatre, built in 1968. Later renovations converted it to a four-screen operation, but the major expansion came in 2003, when it was substantially rebuilt as the Mayan Palace. The project was designed by the Dallas architectural firm Hodges & Associates.

Browning Construction Company, contractors for the project, published an article about the Mayan in the first issue of their house organ, currently available as a pdf file from this page at their web site. The article has several photographs of the theater.

I saw on some other site that there was a shooting at this theatre two days after the CT school incident???

Two Injured in San Antonio, TX Movie Theater Shooting. The Village Voice headline is a bit misleading. The gunman was shot in the theater, where an off-duty deputy who was moonlighting as mall security chased him, but the gunman shot his only victim in the parking lot before running into the theater. Nobody was killed (off-screen, at least. What the on-screen death toll was that night I don’t know.)

A number of shootings happen in the United States every day, so odds are that a theater will be the scene of one now and then. I doubt that this incident indicates that the Mayan Palace 14 is any more dangerous than the average public place in San Antonio. I’m sure that far more people are killed or injured in automobile accidents while driving to and from theaters than are killed or injured by being shot in theaters.
