Riverside Drive-In Theater / Fort Worth TX / Don Lewis / Billy Smith

The Riverside Drive-In was located on NE 28th Street. It was opened November 10, 1950 with Barbara Stanwyck in “The Furies”. After serving as a regular drive-in, it ended its days as an adult drive-in.

After it was closed, it was demolished and a golf driving range was built on the site. This has since been demolished and the site is a housing development by 2018.

I have a question for Mike Rogers, please. Would you happen to know if Phil Isley Theatres opened the Riverside, or later acquired it from the initial owners in the late-‘50s? Thank you.
