The Raye Theater in Hondo

One of the pleasures of working as a freelance performer, in this case Doc Ed, is going on road trips to places like Hondo where I saw a a movie theater. I love movie theaters, especially the older ones like the one I saw in Hondo last Tuesday. The Raye Theater, located in old downtown Hondo, is like a precious gem which is hopefully appreciated by the locals. There's not much info on  the internet that I could find about the theater and it's history but since it only has a single screen and it's particular architecture, I can only assume that it dates back to at the least the early 1940's or 1930's.

As soon as there's a chance I want my family to see this place. My kids have never seen a theater like it before so it should be a treat for them I want them to see what they used to be like in my youth before all of them are gone.

The ceiling above the box office. Beautiful!

Saturday Booksigning

This weekend I'll be at the Texas Book Festival signing copies of the children's picture book "El Milagro de Monterrey" published by Raining Popcorn Media and illustrated by yours truly. I'll be in the The San Antonio Story, En Nuestras Palabras section at the "Children's Tent". The section is sponsored by the Latino Leadership for the Library Committee to whom I am very grateful for their invitation to participate in this event.

This is a first for me so I'm really looking forward to being a part of this wonderful literary event. Hope to see you there!

Puppet Show Time

We finally did our marionette variety show at the San Antonio Museum of Art. That's Pammy and myself at the top of the show. It went well. It's been a long while since Pammy and I have done a show together and it felt good. Can't wait for the next time.
