So it should be listed as closed? Looking a aerial there is nothing there except a empty field.

Drive-In 54 commented about Parkview Drive-In on Oct 13, 2013 at 6:22 am

Tp…..you are correct about the address. It was 1526 Parkwood. But to use the goggle maps feature of CT to map to the correct location we need to use the current address of the property.

I believe this is the address:

2430 U.S. 77, San Benito, TX 78586

I found aerial from 1962. Plus a picture of the marquee!

If I’m wrong let me know!!

The second screen information is listed from drive-ins.com. Information there is dubious at times. That might be wrong. I’m looking at the aerials also.

Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 8, 2013 at 7:55 pm

This should be the correct address (close enough) for the Brunswick Drive-In :

Old Portland Rd & Grant Rd, Brunswick, Maine 04011

Is this correct?

So this aerial that mike uploaded is wrong also. This aerial is the Bowdoin Drive-In.

Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 8, 2013 at 7:01 pm

So we have two drive-ins on CT with the same address.

The Brunswick and Bowdoin are both listed at 15 Tibbett’s Drive.

So is the Bowdoin Drive-In the correct address: 15 Tibbett’s Drive, East Brunswick?

The Brunswick Drive-In unknown at this time?

It was listed in 1956 Yearbook of Motion Pictures. But that could be wrong also.

Drive-In 54 commented about Whitesburg Drive-In on Oct 6, 2013 at 6:10 pm

Little bit of history from Craig E. Parsons.

The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater, Huntsville’s first drive-in, was opened June 16, 1949. This theater is located one-half mile south of Huntsville on Whitesburg Drive and is owned and operated by Acme Investments, Incorporated, whose stockholders are Walton Fleming, president; Martha Fleming, vice-president; and Charles A. Crute, secretary-treasurer. In keeping with company policy, the latest type of equipment is maintained. The screen size was increased in 1954 to 100 x 40 feet to accommodate both wide-screen and Cinemascope attractions. Just prior to that time, playground equipment was installed in front of the screen and is available free of charge to patrons. The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater has a modern, fully-equipped Snack Bar. Mr. Robert Ross, who manages the Theater, is also manager of the Snack Bar. The screen burned down some time during May of 1980. All of the playground equipment was now gone and the lot had been bulldozed over.

I think this is it. It is on TWP 36 across from the cemetery. Looks like it was a pretty good size. 400 car maybe.

This is the only movie ad I could find from the Booker Park Drive-In. I guess it was a “colored” theatre only. I checked the address and could not find any remains in a 1962 aerial. It must not have been open very long.

Drive-In 54 commented about Temple Drive-In on Sep 26, 2013 at 8:21 am

Here is what I have:

Open in 1955 K&K and Temple Drive-Ins.

Open In 1963-1970 Meridian Drive-In. The only one listed in the town.

My thinking is that the K&K or Temple got renamed to the Meridian.

That is all I got.

Drive-In 54 commented about Temple Drive-In on Sep 26, 2013 at 6:08 am

In my listings the K & K Drive-In and the Temple Drive-In were separate theatres.
