October 12 in San Antonio history...

1960
Presidential candidate John F. Kennedy makes a campaign stop in San Antonio. Kennedy told the crowd gathered in front of the Alamo, “In 1960, the cause of all mankind is the cause of all Americans.”

1979
Santikos opens a new six-screen, 46,000 square foot theater at the corner of Loop 410 and Perrin-Beitel roads.  It’s called the Galaxy.  This expands the Santikos movie chain to 11 theaters with 34 screens.  The theater opens showing “Apocalypse Now”, “Starting Over”, “The Glacier Fox”, “The Shape of Things to Come”, “The Inheritance” and “Grease” with “Saturday Night Fever (PG version).”

1980
Country-western group Alabama makes their first appearance in San Antonio at the Majestic Theater.  San Antonians evidently had not heard much about them because the crowd was estimated at between 100 and 200 people.
