These two Theaters are on Congress Ave in Austin on the Historic Meridian Highway (Originally Texas Highway 2) first north- south highway from Canada to Mexico! When I was a teenager we would ride the City Bus to Downtown on Saturday afternoon and take in a Movie! $1 would get you into the Theater, buy you a coke and some popcorn and leave enough for the Bus Fare back home!
