Well, I know I was there in 81 and it was still there for employees at least. I remember an all night party and we got to hang out in the building and they did show the actual Chevy Show.

I'm referring to the film itself. This question occurred to me while reading an article referring to the puppet show performed by Kathy Burks.

I can check some maps if no one recalls, but I'm pretty sure that the movie has been gone since mid-80s or so.

The building has been used for several other shows. I seem to recall at least one magic show and the puppet show was there.

Thanks, Davis! It never occurred to me to look at the maps. Looks like it was removed in 1986.

And the Looney Tunes live show ("Wacky World Games" or something like that).

I know it was still showing in the late 80's around 88. I didn't move up here from Houston until 87. I remember going to "Fright Nights" and seeing a special halloween show in there. This was when they still did the Haunted Cave and the haunted house was in the Texas arcade. It was gone by the time I started in 92. So, my guess is 88 or 89.
