  1. I found a very obscure theater found today. I was looking at the newspaper The Texas Jewish Herald dated January 10, 1935 and came across a film showing listing for The Strand. Very cool! There was an article a decade afterwards about one of the founders/operators who owned a lot of other theatres in downtown at that time. January 10, 1935. Mrs. Millie Schulman, 69, who together with her husband, A Schulman operated a number of motion picture theatres here between 1910 and 1928, died at her home, 612 Harold Street, at 2:15 p.m. Friday. Mrs. Schulam had been a resident of Houston for the past 24 years. She and her husband operated the Pastime Theatre located in the 200 block of Main Street, from 1910 to 1915, and the Texas Theatre, located near Congress and Main Street, from 1915 until 1921, the Stand Theatre, located near Travis and Texas, from 1921 until 1928, and two or three suburban theatres from 1917 until 1928. Their son, Morris Schulam, now resident of Bryan where he operates a theatre, aided them for a number of year in the operation of the various Houston theatres.
  2. Ok, I was researching historic Houston theaters and came across a blog post about a theater called "Texas Theatre" which was located near Congress and Main Street from 1915 until 1921. Surely this theater was renamed at some point? Does anyone have pictures, or postcards of this old theater? Thanks all.
  3. Who remembers one of the first movie theaters in Houston called Pastime Theater located at 2514 McKinney Street. The Pastime Theater opened in 1923, and it appears to have been a small neighborhood theater. It was operating until at least 1950.
