The Good Doctor's Spotlight Adult Theater: Olmos Theatre in San Antonio, TX

The newest Spotlight Adult Theater here at the Journal is the long closed Olmos Theatre in San Antonio, TX.   The reason I have chosen this theater is that a) There is a nice photographic record of it's days as an XXX house, b) The building is still standing, and c) How the theater has been re-purposed.

The Story (courtesy of a poster on Cinema Treasures)
The Olmos Theatre auditorium was long and narrow. It had a large screen with a gold curtain. The walls were adorned with floral patterned artwork. It had no balcony.

When I was a kid in the late 50s and early 60s, it seemed that every time I went to see a Disney picture it played at the Olmos. It was the flagship of the Santikos Theatre chain that once owned and operated the vast majority of San Antonio theatres. Unfortunately the Olmos spent it’s last days as an X rated movie theatre in the mid 80s.

The San Antonio College of Dental and Medical Assistants now holds class in the old Olmos building.
