The Ayers had it’s grand opening on Sep 1, 1947. There was a full page ad and a newspaper article in the Aug 29, 1947 Corpus Christi Caller-Times newspaper. The first movie shown was “Miracle on 34th Street”.

In August of 2009, the Solid Rock Church went through a remodeling and they auctioned off many of the old theater seats.

United Artists downgraded the Ayers to a one dollar, discount sub-run house. It closed with “Willow” on September 5, 1988. It closed the same day that the venerable Centre Theatre closed.
