Could this have been the same as the Dixie Drive-In, to the west of Olden on FM 3383? Olden seems like too small of a town to have had two drive-ins.

Rick Cohen, owner of the Transit Drive-In in Lockport NY, wrote a fine essay about this “Drive-In Without A Name”. According to him, this Olden drive-in was under construction when the owner’s daughter died in an accident. It was never opened, operated, or even named.

According to Google Street View, the skeleton was still there as of May 2013.
