Bud Abbott must have changed the spelling of his name in 1957.

A rare photo of Waco’s Circle Drive In Theater taken in 1948 by Dick Bogusch of Ft. Worth.

FASCINATING pic, Don! I have to ask, too, where in the world did you find that photo? Also, is there a larger copy of this available?

ken mc, thanks for posting the second pic showing the Circle’s roadside marquee. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m slowly discovering that the drive-ins owned and operated by Stanley Warner Theaters, and later by Texas Southwest Theatres, displayed this unique marquee. I seem to remember the Fort Worth Twin had a similar marquee, and I’m suspecting that the Corral and, possibly, the Westside, all in Fort Worth, had the same, too.

Thanks, fellas!

They should do some fundrasing and restore the back of that screen, it would be a big attraction to the area.
