Yes, that was the XIT. I saw many movies there. JBH
Yours is the only photo of the Ritz that I have been able to locate. Are there others?
I took video of the Rio and of the Palace shortly before they were demolished by the city of Littlefield. I am searching for info on when the Rio closed.
There were two drive-ins in LFD. The first was the LFD, one tenth of a mile west of town. It had an open-air sound system. The second was the XIT, two tenths of a mile south of LFD on the Levelland Highway. I have photos and info on the seven theaters in LFD, TX.
I have research and historical information on the Palace done in connection with an attempt to restore it, in about 2003. Please feel free to contact me.
