SAN ANGELO, TX — The wheels are in motion for San Angelo to get a drive-in.

The city council Tuesday approved the sale of 40 acres in the city’s industrial park – at U.S. Highways 67 and 277, and Loop 306 in northeast San Angelo – to Lamesa Enterprises. The company wants to develop a three-screen drive-in theater there.

According to the agreement, the company will pay $8,000 an acre for the land. In turn, the city will build a 3,300-foot sewer line to the property and let the company drill a water well for the business.

“Sweet!!! We need many more, many more. Espescially up here in the northeast.”

is something I totally agree with, movie534. They should also play more independent and older classic films, etc., rather than the schlock that most movie theatres play nowadays.
