MikeRogers, you must be talking about the Fiesta Drive-In on N. Mesa Road, which was opened 1950-1981.

Just to Note — Back in 1999 I talked to the owner(s). I was told ‘this’ Drive In opened as a Rated “X” Drive In. There’s a Mobile Home park next door to the Drive In. I ask if there were any complaints & I was told the Drive In is protected by the “Grandfather” Law as it was there before the M.H.Park & the M.H.Park & its' occupants could not do a thing about the Drive In..

I am pleased to report that the Fiesta Theater, currently an outdoor movie theater showing porn, has converted to digital projection.

Wow. Digital Projection, huh? Man, they are moving up in the world. Nice!

Did this theater do enough business to warrant the conversion to video projectors?

In a 2015 article in the UTEP student newspaper, The Prospector, the Fiesta manager says it “has two motion picture screens with a maximum capacity for 500 cars.” Looking at Google Earth images, I can’t find a second screen.
