The Austin Theater opened in 1939, and was the home of first run movies until the 1970’s. By the mid-1970’s, however, the theater and the surrounding area deteriorated and the Austin was eventually closed.
In 1977, the theater was sold to a new owner who turned it into an adult movie theater. With the new format, the theater’s name was changed to Cinema West and it continued to show XXX-rated movies until it finally closed in 1998, amid deep complaints from residents.
The property was then sold to a new group who plans to turn the theater into office space to meet increased demand from local high-tech companies.
