US-87 N, Tahoka, TX 79373

The drive-in is located ¼ mile north of town on the east side of US-87.

Here is a 1954 aerial photo which shows the location of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS:

After reviewing aerial photos from 1967 for a five mile radius around Tahoka, my conclusion is that there were no other drive-ins built or operating after the T-Bar was destroyed in 1959. The T-Bar was not operational in the 1967 aerial photos.

There was an F-Bar Drive-In in Tahoka listed in the 1963 IMPA.

A 1956 photo of the T Bar Drive In sign and marquee. Tahoka Texas.

And a photo here and here showing the aftermath of a tornado that destroyed the theater in 1959.
