The Garland Road Drive-In was in a very popular location, and opened on April 7, 1950 with Mark Stevens & June Haver in “Oh, You Beautiful Doll”. With a capacity for 600 cars, it had customers coming from Dallas and Garland to watch sometimes prime movies. It was operated by C.D. Leon Theatres. It was closed in 1966.
It was taken over by Tri-States Theatres/McLendon Theatres and reopened on October 3, 1968 as the Apollo Twin Drive-In with a capacity for 1,800 cars and 175 seats for walk-in patrons. The Apollo Twin Drive-In closed at the end of 1986, and has been gone for many years. That whole triangular area was the new Hyper Mart built by Sam Walton. Later it was renamed Walmart.
