Loved the Capada. It was still showing first-run movies in the early 1980’s. Was full on the weekends. Owners were ready to retire/move and no one would buy it. Too bad. For a while it was the only drive-in open in the region excepting the one in Lamesa. I saw many, many movies there on many, many dates (well, I saw parts of many movies!)

Certainly. I finally did see all of Ghandi with Ben Kingsley years later. I swear I went to the Capada to see it but something caused the windows to fog up!

I found this on a website with a date of 1/22/93.

“The Capada Drive-In, just south of Floydada, Tex., out where the West Texas sagebrush grows, is still going strong after 40 years, thanks to the management of Chris McGowen, who keeps it open every night of the year except Fridays in the fall. "You can’t compete with high school football,” she says. P.H. Parker of Austin reminds us that, with eternal vigilance, the drive-in will never die".

I guess the Capada Drive-In opened in the early 50’s.

So much for eternal vigilance.

Approx. location for this drive-in was just north of County Road 260 on U.S. 62. The theatre was west of the highway.
