March 15 in San Antonio history…
Stephen F. Austin arrives in San Antonio.
First Assistant Police Chief McCabe advocates a sidewalk along the bank of the San Antonio River along the business district downtown to allow police patrols to curb the rash of burglaries by thieves who rob the stores and then escape into the river undetected.
After almost 20 years of showing movies, the North Star Cinema closes. The triple-screen theater owned and operated by Boston-based GCC Theaters, Inc. showed its final movie today. Steve Colson, GCC regional vice president said “It was determined that based on our receipts from box office attendance at the theater, it would be better if we were not at the North Star Mall location.” (The final movies shown at the theater were: “Sahara” starring Brooke Shields, “Lassiter” starring Tom Selleck and “Blame It On Rio” starring Michael Caine.)
