This drive-in theater opened in 1950. The Twin City’s ads boasted a “large playground for the kiddies” and “mosquito control nightly”, which is a must in southeast Texas. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, 70 cents would admit a carload!

The Twin City Drive-In operated year-round. A December 1953 advertisement for the theater invited patrons to “…drive out early. Enjoy a delicious meal at our snack bar – fried chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, and many other treats”. It was operated by Julius M. Gordon of the Jefferson Amusement Co.

Sadly, the Twin City Drive-In closed in 1983, and the site has been redeveloped.

Above address is incorrect. It was further south @ about 3926 Avenue H.

Now Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The western border for the drive-in is still there.
