Owned by the City of San Antonio and operated by the World Heritage Office, and nestled near the historic and internationally-renowned San Antonio Missions, Mission Marquee Plaza is an area rich in history and considered to be one of San Antonio’s cultural gems. For generations, many families in San Antonio gathered at the site to watch movies when it served as the former Mission Drive-In Theater.
The Mission Drive-In Theater opened on March 27, 1948, with a 77-minute long love-triangle Western – Pirates of Monterey. After a run of more than half a century, the Mission was the last drive-in theater in San Antonio to go dark in 2000. Slab Cinema began working with COSA in 2013 and shows movies on the renovated screen. The theater is now a walk-in.
