Film & Building Use

Welcome to the Bexar County Courthouse, the oldest and largest continually operating courthouse in the State of Texas. With its rich history and architecture, filmmakers from all over the world come to use the courthouse as a backdrop. Our double-height courtrooms have served as backgrounds for commercials, as well as documentaries and the Lady Justice Fountain located in front of the Courthouse, provides a grand introduction to any filming purpose.
The Building Use Permits office can take your request to use a county facility. A Building Use Permit is required as well as liability insurance to use a county building.
