Grew up in the Rita, Texas, Flamingo Drive In, and Gay 90 Drive In theaters in Del Rio. My Dad was manager from 1959 to 1965 and I was a projectionist at all four. Rowley was a partner with the Poags in the theaters, called Val Verde Theaters, Inc. Rita was 1st. run, Gay 90 Drive In ran english. Texas and Flamingo Drive In ran Spanish.
