Flamingo Drive-In

Opened by the early-1960’s, it had a 1,000 car capacity between its two screens.

The Flamingo was located at about 2800 North Dal Paso at what is now the location of the Dal Paso Shopping Center. It had two screens, with a snack bar and projectionist room located in a building midway between the two facing screens. It had a great neon sign.

I would truly love a picture of the Flamingo Drive-IN.My father managed this theatre in the early 60’s. My mother ran the sanck bar and I was projectionist. We showed spanish films on the far screen on Sunday’s. We also presented the areas professional fireworks display for the 4th of July. Our family home was between the theatre and a cemetary.

Why the name flamingo? I don’t think the bird is native to New Mexico, unlike Florida(i think?)?
