My great-grandfather, Joseph Weidman, and his brother, built the Gem originally.
My recollection is of at least three drive-in theaters in Wichita Falls. One on the north side—that would be Sheppard Access; one on the southwest side—that would be at Seymour Highway and Old Seymour Rd.; and one on Grant Street, which also had some indoor seating. And it seems as though there might even have been a fourth at some point, though I can’t remember where it was.
In the 50’s and 60’s it was definitely on Indiana, just a couple of blocks north of the Wichita, both on the northeast side of Indiana.
