The Schulmans opened several Drive-In theatres during the 1960s, including the Circle Drive-In, the Skyway Drive-In, and the Skyway Twin. The last of the Schulman drive-ins closed in 1984. Many multiplexes were bought, build and sold during the 1970s through 1990s.
William “Billy” Schulman began working in the industry as a small boy with his father, Morris. He owned theatres in various cities, continued his father’s charitable legacy, and was well-respected in the theatred industry until his death in 2013. His vivacious and unique personality is the inspiration for Billy’s Grille inside Schulman’s Movie Bowl Grille facilities.
Our owner, Mark Schulman, is the fourth-generation of the Schulman family to be a theatre owner. He has been actively involved in the theatre industry for over 30 years and was instrumental in the development of Schulman Theatres Lost Pines 8 in Bastrop, Texas. This facility was the first of its kind in the motion picture industry – combining movies, bowling, and interactive amusements.
