Serving Borger and two other nearby towns the Tri-City Drive-In fulfilled its purpose of presenting double features in an outdoor setting. It was opened prior to 1955 and was operated by Video Independent Theatres of Oklahoma City, OK.

jwmovies address information above is incorrect. 1415 W Wilson St is the correct address for the Plains Drive-In, not the Tri-City Drive-In.

Tri-City Drive-In was located at: S Florida St & Tristram St, Borger, TX 79007

Both the Plains and the Tri-City were open by the early 1950s. The Tri-City was closed by 1960, as it no longer appears in theatre catalogs, and is completely demolished in the 1969 aerial photos.

Plains Drive-In still appears in 1969 aerial photos at the W Wilson St address, and is still listed in the 1969 theatre catalog.

Please update the address for this listing as:

Tri-City Drive-In S Florida St & Tristram St Borger, TX 79007
