Information for this tour was contributed by John Stewart.

The Aquarius was built in 1972-73 by Trans Texas Theatres as their third theatre in Austin. All 4 auditoriums featured curtains in front of the screen with auditoriums 1, 2, & 4 having traditional travelers in them and auditorium 3 had waterfalls. Each theatre had it own color scheme as well. Now the building serves as a Small Mercado of sorts with a Mexican food restaurant in what was auditorium 4.

ACT III acquired this location from AMC Theatres in 1989.
