The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents a seaon of events and develops the arts and culture of the Chicano and Latino people. A single story building but a good job was done on the color scheme when it was restored.
When it opened in 1940 as the Guadalupe Theatre, it ran a regular double bill, short subjects and cartoons. It succumbed to the economics of the 1960’s like many other stand alone theatres. It later became a flea market.
With the assistance of the mayor of San Antonio and council members loans were obtained for over a million dollars for renovation. The renovation started in 1983. It had its grand reopening in 1984 and is going strong today serving the community.
