San Antonio Theatres:
Now & Then
Past & Present
October 30, 2007, added four new Photo Albums on Gerald Lyda page.

October 29, 2007, added Film Festivals.

October 28, 2007, added over 15 pages to the Hispanic Theatres. Check out the index page.

October 24, 2007, added a couple of links on the Movie Links page. Al Frakes, movie producer from San Antonio, has a motion picture production company, SAF Studios, Inc. in San Antonio and is a member of The Greater San Antonio Film Council. Both sites are linked on the Movie Links page.

Also on October 24, 2007, I revamped home page. I hope you like this layout better.

October 23, 2007, added Film Commissions from all 50 states and the Provinces of Canada. Actually, all of this will be moved to Direct 2 Hollywood, once it is built next year. You are getting a preview of our new national site. Check out Direct 2 Hollywood found in the Table of Contents.

October 18, 2007, added Film Festivals to the Movie Links page at the header on top.

October 17, 2007, I created four Photo Albums for Gerald Lyda's page. Check out his large collection of San Antonio and state-wide theatres. Click on Gerald Lyda.

October 15, 2007, I created Photo Albums for Paul Adair. He sent me his collection of Interstate Theatres. He has hundreds of photographs to share. Check out his page, Paul Adair.

October 14, 2007, the Mission !V is soon to be razed. The City of San Antonio purchased the drive-in for a reported $3,300,00.00. They plan a four month study period afterwhich, they plan to raze the theatre for a National Parks Headquarters, an Hispanic college campus, a library and possibly a Veterans Memorial. WOAI-TV broke the story today. See the account at WOAI-TV.

We are hoping that the Mission Drive-In one can be saved, even though there is little hope for screens two, three or four. See our campaign to Save the Mission.

October 12, 2007, I met Melissa Martinez.  She has another website  similar to ours and has been gracious
enough to share her knowledge of theatres in San Antonio with us. It was through her that I found out that John Eberson designed the Woodlawn Theatre. We hope some day to get the theatre recognized historically. I have created a page for her and a link to her website, San Antonio Theatres History Website.
