THE AZTEC THEATRE HISTORY

 

The Aztec Theatre is San Antonio's premier historical multi-purpose entertainment and events facility. Located in the heart of downtown at the corner of Commerce St. and St. Mary's St., the Aztec Theatre is one of the Alamo City's most cherished architectural and historical landmarks. Considered by many as a Meso-American architectural work of art, the Aztec boasts a dramatic combination of authentic columns, reliefs and artifacts. From its stunning lobby and mezzanine to the glorious theatre and balcony, the Aztec Theatre is an experience unlike any other.

 

At a price of just under $2 million, the Aztec officially opened on June 4, 1926 as one of the most decorative movie theaters in the country. The design firm of Meyer & Holler combined elements of Aztec design with modern touches creating an ancient American look, complete with polychromed plasterwork, duplicating murals, massive columns and sculpture from ancient Mexican temples. The centerpiece of the lobby was a three-ton chandelier, two stories tall and twelve feet wide, hailed as the largest in Texas at the time.
