Not a huge deal but the location of the old theater on the map is incorrect. Here is a link to where it was located. The site later was a K-Mart and is now a shopping center with an AT&T store, UPS store and dentist. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=temple,+tx+at%26t&hl=en&ll=31.088433,-97.386535&spn=0.005375,0.009645&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=40.59616,79.013672&hq=at%26t&hnear=Temple,+Bell,+Texas&t=m&fll=31.088433,-97.386535&fspn=0.005375,0.009645&z=17

Does anyone remember the drive in theater that was located near 31st and Canyon Creek Drive? I remember one being there around 1978.
