CVS sure didn’t do much at all in remodeling the place lol
wonder what the front side of the screen looks like?
wow, televisions at the concession area. that is different lol
Hopefully a lot of the drive-ins that shut down last season will re open with the new lease to own digital projectors
It’s good to see more and more Drive-ins with the heading “open (showing movies)” than “closed/demolished”!!
The upper window on the far right was the location of the theatres restroom, I only remember 1, but there could have been another
Behind this double door was the entrance to the auditorium. Stairs were to the left and right for the balcony. Behind the refridgerator was the window for the concession area, there was another window to the immediate left just upon entering the double doors. Bags of popcorn were 50 cents, candy was 25-50 cents and very small cups of pepsi, which often tasted like glue lol)were 50 cents. Usually one of the girls that worked the concession stand would give me a huge leftover bag of that nights popcorn to take home!
Usually above the doors it was posted-FRI, SAT, & SUN 7:30 (days of operation and showtime)
One sheets were hung in this frame by 4 push pins, you can still see thousands of the pinholes
Doors to the Boone Theatre. In the 70’s, the owner, Mrs. Greene would have all the doors open after the feature to let out the movie going crowd
godawful multiplexes NEVER do stuff like this anymore!

I checked out the picture and I could barely make out part of “Fountain”, cool!

Some of the best photos I’ve seen on here!
One of the things I remember most about Texas during my stay there in the summer of 1991, lots and lots of open land and lots and lots of abandoned drive ins, even explored a few of them!
There is a cool night time video on youtube for this drive in. The guy in the video climbs the back of the screen!
That has to be the worst eyesore for a homeowner ever!
I’m sure this is the cinemaplex I saw “Oh, Heavenly Dog” at in the summer of 1980, I was vacationing from WV with my parents and we always stayed with my brother, wife and their children. My sister-in-law took me and my nice and nephew to the movies and we had a choice of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Oh, Heavenly Dog”. “The Shining” was also playing, as I remember the one sheet scared the heck out of me at the time. My niece and nephew had already seen “empire” a few times already, and although I was dying to see it, I was outvoted and we saw the chevy chase movie instead!!
Shame that the old creepy photo of this drive in was removed!
Theater Owners Corporation owned the Crab Orchard drive in in 1955
