San Pedro Outdoor Theatre

Located in the north of San Antonio on San Pedro Avenue and W. Rampart Drive. The San Pedro Outdoor Theatre was opened in April 6, 1948 with Joan Crawford on “Daisy Kenyon”. It was operated by Charles Albert. It had an 800-car capacity and there was a 100 seat area for walk-in’s. By 1955 it was operated by Joe Wolfe. It was closed and demolished in 1965 when the second San Pedro Outdoor Twin Theatre was opened at San Pedro Avenue and Bitters Road (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The San Pedro Towne Shopping Center now stands on the site.

By the way, the article Michael mentions is at the bottom right corner of page 87, and although it mentions photos, the article itself does not include any pix.
