From fire insurance maps, I believe the address is 144 S. Wilson. Coats is at 142 S. Wilson, so this address would seem to match up. The theatre shows up on maps as early as 1925.
The Aztec Theatre interior may have gone baroque, but the exterior was pure Southwestern. Another 30s view can be seen on above post by entering “wilson street looking north”.
Go up to 03-26-11 post to see a vintage image of both the Aztec and State theatres, type in
Take a look at 166 S. Wilson to see what the Aztec Theatre is like today, now Coats Appliances. Can’t tell if across the street the State Theatre has a new facade, or if that is a new building.
Open ~1940-~1961? can anyone verify the exact dates.
1940-1945 Griffith Amusement Co.
!950-1961 Video Independent Theatres, Inc., of Oklahoma City, K.C. Blackledge, President, they had over 120 theaters in New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
Could use an address or crossroads and more info and more photos are always welcome.
