The Northwest Six Theatres open at IH 10 and 410, showing “Play It Again, Sam”, “The Hiding Place”, “Crime & Passion”, “Echoes of a Summer”, “Bugs Bunny Superstar” and “The Duchess & the Dirtwater Fox.”  The multiplex would later expand to ten and fourteen screens.

The 10-story Robert E. Lee Hotel downtown wins a reprieve as plans for demolition were delayed by a vote of the Historic Review Board.  However, the board did grant approval for demolition of the old Wolfe’s Inn restaurant – built in 1909 – at Fredericksburg and Wurzbach roads, and the old Green Gate night club on St. Mary’s Street near Pecan.

Sea World of Texas opens.
