Looks awesome…great pics!
any updates on the restoration?
You would think Fort Worth would try and improve Cowtown.
as big of tourist draw, and the area looks so run down.
Stabilizing IsIs would be a huge step toward that.
If it was cleaned up and replaced the roof it likely wouldn’t look that bad.
Here is a photo of the Texas Theatre in the 40’s.
Here is a pic from 1937 showing “Fifty Roads to Town”
Just saw Jimmy Vaughn there last night and what a fabulous job Wellington has done on “The Ritz”.
Its just as nice on the inside as out.
Drive-In is on US87 just south of Friendship Lane. at the Immel Dealership.
Map isn’t even close.
Full page Color Picture of the old Rocket on page 99 of Roadside America.
I couldn’t find it on New Sapulpa Rd.
It looks like its at Route 66 and W. Ozark Trail in Sapulpa, OK.
Still standing, although all grown up. 6/2011

Makes me sad every time I pass thru Cowtown. :(
Thanks. I can’t seem to find any info on it.
More info on “The Old Movie Theatres of Texas” book please.
My Mother (Marsha Peterson Boyd) also worked at the Joy Clinton.
Her mother owned/operated “Peterson Grocery” on Hwy 10 East.
I can’t believe no one has submitted a photo of this theatre.
Showed X-rated films (clearly seen from Greenwell St) before it closed and became a Mobile home sales lot.
Although grown up, the cedar tree lined drive was still visible last time I was by there.
Too bad the Saenger sign from 1963 didn’t remain.
Any restoration updates?
