Opened around 1950, and was operated by Phil Isley Theatres.

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.

I think James is right. Historical Aerials does not show any sort of drive-in at the 1702 N. Sylvania Ave address. All the way back to ‘56. Looks pretty much the same as it does now.

At 3721 NE 28th St., Fort Worth, TX United States (that maps it the best) there was a drive-in there, which is called Riverside by that other Drive-In website. Now a golf driving range. They list it as 3500 NE 28th, but that’s several blocks away.

Yes it parked 650 cars and in the late 50’s it was owned by Phil Isley who also owned the Westerner Drive-in in Fort Worth.

The Riverside Drive-In I remembered was on 28th Street, not Sylvania Ave. Could there have been two!
