Was the movie house near the airport???

Houston’s Bush Airport didn’t exist in 1950, and Hobby Airport is approximately 16 miles away, so the Airway name remains a mystery.

The September 5, 1947 issue of The Film Daily carried a brief blurb that stated the 650 seat theater had recently opened. It was part of the J. G. Long circuit, which operated several theaters in Texas, including the North Houston. Variety had previously carried a similar notice in its August 20, 1947 issue.
