No one has favorited this theater yet
The Airport Drive In was opened July 13, 1950 by the Interstate Theater Circuit of Dallas five miles south of Paris toward Mount Pleasant on Highway 271.
The first movie was “Renegades” with Evelyn Keyes.
Claude Musselman had gotten the Airport into the planning stages, but retired before it opened and was replaced by C. W. Moss as city manager for Interstate.
Cecil Burch was first manager and the theater was equipped to handle over 500 fans loaded into automobiles
The Airport lasted 24 years going under in 1974. All that remained in 2007 was the old snack bar and marquee, no longer lit up with its Airport name.
