AZTEC THEATRE (San Antonio, Tx)

'
'
These are movies I remember seeing as a kid from the 1970s through 1980s before it was closed then renovated then closed again. I even remember when it showed adult movies for a short period of time [where I snuck in once or twice before :)]. Ahh such memories! Is it even still there??? Share your memories here:
