News About This Theater
Opened June 30, 1939, this was a very attractive theatre in the Art Deco style. The large front façade with the upper portion in a dark pink polished granite with the Art Deco lines down each side and two sections in the middle. Large vertical “Broadway” sign. Lower portion of the façade in a cream color polished granite that is rounded on each side leading into the entrance of the theatre. It had a fairly large triangular marquee with three rows for attraction listings. The box office was to the right side of the entrance.
A large lobby with a good sized balcony. Carpeting throughout the theatre was in a burgundy with abstract patterns. A rather plain auditorium. Total seating was 912. The theatre is located in the Alamo Heights area. It was closed in 1977. A very impressive building and in great shape. With the acquisition of the adjoining property it would make a great multiplex using the existing theatre as the main auditorium much like the Esquire Theatre in St. Louis, Missouri.
