Showboat Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The grandchildren of the owner of the original Showboat Drive-In have built a brand new one at 22422 FM 2920, just outside of Tomball, near Houston. Talk, smoke, enjoy a beer, bring your pooch! Take your kids to the movies in their pajamas! What a treat! My kids think this is all a new invention; they went bananas! Screen is 40'x80'. Double features are shown.

It is now a twin screen theatre.

On opening night, they had to turn cars away. The place is great and doing a brisk business! Teens love it cause they can chat on their cell phones and text message without me screaming at them.

UPDATE: It’s 2012 and the Showboat is still going strong! My wife and I attempted to spend an evening at The Showboat but we were turned away due to a sell-out. This place has turned out to be a huge hit!

We have been out twice this year – both times we experienced sell-outs at one or more of the screens – great prices – including food – watch Groupon for periodic coupons.
