an idea most of us forgot to do take a photo with our brownies or kodak istamatic. we forgot as many a high school date never thought the theaters wood die out. at night it would stand out like a time square we enjoyed going to the movies, weekend and weekdays. only a small town here and there the howard in taylor, tx and the lanatex in llano or the oak theater. small towns need the business for the tire travelers who wish to stay the night.

this article in the Rio Grande Herald of February 9, 1984, says that the Garmon Theatre opened in 1937. As of 1984, it was being operated by Concha Gavilan, who also operated the H & H Drive-In at Rio Grande City.

Ads for the Garmon Teahtre from the 1970s and 1980s give the address as 212-214 E. Main Street. A Chevron filling station across Main Street from the theater currently has the address 207 E.Main, so the theater’s old address must still be in use.
