ABOUT SANTIKOS THEATERS

Greek entrepreneur Louis Santikos could not have known that when he founded a movie theatre in San Antonio in 1911, he was launching an entertainment legacy in Texas. More than 100 years later, the Santikos name is synonymous with the movie industry. From humble beginnings, to the celebrated opening of its elegant Palladium IMAX Theatre built in honor of the family's Greek heritage, the Santikos family has earned a reputation as pioneers in the motion picture industry.  Following in his father's footsteps, John Santikos joined the family movie business after graduating from St. Mary's University. Today, the Santikos Theatre circuit includes eight theatres: The Palladium IMAX, The Silverado San Antonio, The Mayan Palace, The Embassy, The Rialto Brewhaus, The Bijou Cinema Bistro, The Northwest, all in San Antonio, and The Silverado IMAX in Northwest Houston. The Palladium 22 is coming soon to Fort Bend County in Houston.
