The Mission Marquee Plaza, formerly known as the Mission Drive-In Theatre, officially opened in 2014. The facility is located on the Southside of San Antonio near Mission San Jose, which is one of San Antonio’s five historic Missions recently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The area is rich in history and culture, and is considered to be one of San Antonio’s iconic gems.  For generations, many families locally and from the South Central Texas region gathered to watch movies when it served as a drive-in theater.

In 2011, the Mission Branch Library was the first building added to the Mission Drive-In property, and offers a playground and exercise equipment. In 2017, the Harvey E. Najim YMCA was built on site and features fitness classes, health and wellness programs and access to the Mission Trails and the Mission Reach extension of the famed San Antonio River. This effort is part of a larger strategy to enhance the quality of life for area residents. The City’s investment of nearly $2.3 million is due to the community’s commitment to this 60,000 square-foot green space.

Today, Mission Marquee, with its large stage and screen, serves the community as a meeting place to enjoy various outdoor activities throughout the year including festivals, film screenings, arts & culture events, open-air markets and more. 

The City of San Antonio World Heritage Office oversees Mission Marquee Plaza, along with the Spanish Governor's Palace in downtown San Antonio.
