I have a favor to ask my fellow CT members. I’ve been trying to find out the dimensions of the Belknap’s screen tower and screen for some time now, but have hit the proverbial “brick wall”. I’ve contacted Corgan in Dallas, but nothing’s materialized from my effort. Could anyone here lend a fellow drive-in theatre enthusiast a hand, please? Thank you very much in advance.

My uncle was manager in the 60’s and his family lived under the screen and I used to visit during the summer. GREAT TIMES. Horance (JR) Wilson just recently passed away and one of his former employees from the theater came to the funeral. I am going to try to get pics from the family to post.

LarryFM why were you trying to contact Corgan in Dallas? I have access to them.

LarryFM I just looked at Corgan’s website and I realize that Jack Corgan, a pilot, built drive-ins when he first started the business. One of Corgan’s employees works in the same office that I work in at Love Field. I will see if I can find out the info you want.

Skyhuggs, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your help – it’s very much appreciated! Given the information you have, there are a myriad of questions I’d like to ask you about the Belknap. As I mentioned earlier, I’m looking for the dimensions of the screen tower for a potential project. Is there a way I can contact you off-site? In the meantime, I look forward to your help, photographs, and memories!

I talked to my cousin last night and hooked her up to this site and she is going to look for pics to publish. I will let you email me at and hook you up with her. I’m sure she will be glad to help since her father just died.

I will talk to the Crogan employee tomorrow when he is in my office and see if he can help.

Thank you again, skyhuggs! I’ve sent you my e-mail, and I look forward to corresponding with you and your cousin about the Belknap.

Hi! Just curious if anyone knew if this drive in is still standing and is it still in decent shape? Thank you! Jodi

The Belknap was demolished in the ‘80’s and replaced by a large apartment complex. Although the veterinary clinic in front is still there.
