Here’s the Kiva in 1995. Comparing the 21st century shots, it’s too bad some of the detail of the marquee and building paint accents have been removed since then.

Here’s the Tascosa in 1994 – closed and falling into ruin. I recall driving through Amarillo a few years later and noticing that the drive-in appeared to have become an RV park. So I’m glad to see it’s been restored and showing movies once again!

kpdennis commented about Redding 4 on Apr 25, 2009 at 9:25 am

It’s actually spelled with only one “R” – should be Reding 4. Here’s a photo from the mid-90s, when a country music live show placed their logo over the “4” in the sign.
