Hillcrest Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Dickinson / Hillcrest Drive-In was located on the east side of Dickinson. Opened by the same family as the Dickinson Theatre, the drive-in was the first drive-in in Dickinson.

The screen could be seen from nearby houses in the new Shinagle addition as well as from Morningside Heights Trailer court. Closed down during the 1980’s, another casualty of the opening of Cine 3. The screen came down in the late-1980’s. The road leading to the old drive-in can still be seen, but the spot is unreachable due to new construction.

It opened as the Dickinson Drive-in in 1950. Was renamed the Hillcrest Outdoor Theater in 1966 or 1967. Sold to Carisch Theaters in 1982.

The Hillcrest drive-in parked 350 cars and in 1956 was owned by Hallowell and Wetzstein.
