The last of the deluxe neighborhood theaters built by Interstate Theatre Corp., headed by Karl Hoblitzelle & Bob O'Donnell.
The theater opened in November 1939 with Ginger Rogers in “Batchelor Mother” and was one of a number of deluxe neighborhood theaters built and operated by Interstate. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. The interior decorations were by Buck Winn.
The building has an excellent location in the upscale River Oaks shopping center. Landmark has done a good job maintining the property and the River Oaks still shines today.
I just wish they had not triplexed the building. But, at least she’s still open and going strong as one of Houston’s last true movie palaces.
