John Hinnant, looking pleased. (Davy must've finally hung up.)

Well. that's all she wrote, folks. A pleasant time was had by all, in spite of the temp being
up in the mid-90's.

NOTE: For the beginning of today's photos at the Woodlawn, go back to page 12.

Sunday's San Antonio Express news had a two page spread on THE ALAMO 50th in the SA LIFE section.
(Frank (ImmortalAlamo) Thompson is even quoted in the article. See below.)

great pictures Ned, all of them!!! I wondered why the Woodlawn was chosen and was poised to ask that but I got the answer
and it does make sense. Is the Woodlawn located in a neighborhood? It looks like it could be.

Anyway a guy from the Northwest can get one of those San Antonio papers??? He'd be willing to pay for shipping :!: :!:

Ron, the neighbourhood was supposed to have been quite nice back in the day, but it has since gone to seed. There are
residences around the corner, an HEB grocery store, a gas station, some shops and vacant storefronts. Chris Smith says
that the Woodlawn has the distinction of probably being the first movie house in San Antonio.

As for copies of the Express News newspaper, I was lucky to get the last copy on the rack at the local gas station/minimart
early this morning. You can, however, request back issues of the newspaper in question for $4.00, plus shipping and
handling from the Express News Customer Service department. here is a shortcut to their webpage:

Nice shots, Ned. Thanks for posting. I keep trying to imagine what the Woodlawn and surrounding area were like in their
heyday -- sad to see how the area has gone downhill.

Question: When you folks visited the Waynamo en masse a few weeks ago, did anybody shoot that massive group photo
in front of the chapel as was proposed?

As someone just said and Mo verifies, Cliff Andersen does indeed own one of the 70mm projectors used to show THE ALAMO at the Woodlawn on premiere night. Here are some of Mo's photos of the projector.

While at the Woodlawn the other day, David Mocniak provided all who attended a copy* of his mammoth 24 sheet poster currently
hanging inside of the Alamo Museum/Giftshop as part of the REEL HISTORY exhibit.

*No, not a full-sized copy!

From what I understand the Woodlawn was built in 1946. That would put it nearly forty years behind the first movie theaters in San Antonio. I have no idea what the first one opened but I do know there were no fewer than seventeen moving picture houses in S.A. in 1910. So when it comes to which was first, the Woodlawn isn't even close.

And actually I think this section of town has come back uphill in the last decade from its downhillest point. I know the Woodlawn has been reclaimed a bit, but not enough to do anything.

The improvements(asthetics) you see Rich are all centered along Fred Road..go west and it's older with some nice areas,..........too far west and its all bad and high crime......everything east is not much better.............the city has been been making cosmetic improvements over this area for some time....it tapers off further north along Fred Road..........a number of businesses have gone bust and or relocated.........

It's bad enough that we have the entire WAYNAMO script memorized, but when we can also recite the dialogue from SPIRIT OF
THE ALAMO
verbatim, well, that just borders on...pathetic.

You're standing here under more sky than there is over any of the fifty United States but one. Welcome ta Texas, folks. My name is John Wayne. You're on a ranch in Bexar County about eight miles from Brackettsville. Now, if you can't exactly place Brackettsville.... well, that way south about fifty miles is Mexico... and a hudred and thirty miles east... is San Antonio. (LAP DISSOLVE) This is San Antonio. And right in the heart of this busy city............."

...built by the Spanish two hundred years ago. (DIRECT CUT) And this is our.... Alamo in Brackettville, built by Mexicans and Americans over the last two years. And here is the rest of the mission, the way it looked when a hundred and eighty-five men defended it against an army of five thousand in the winter of 1836. (da-daaaaa, do-do-dat-da, dada dah....)
