Tower Theatre

Before beginning its lengthy run at the Alabama theater Rocky Horror played briefly at the Tower theater on Westheimer.  The Tower theater first opened on February 14, 1936 - 3 years before the Alabama and  River Oaks opened their doors.  It closed it's doors in August, 1978, and the building has since gone through several incarnations - including a concert hall, video store, and now a Tex-Mex restaurant.  Happily, the marquee is still standing.
