The Plains Drive-In opened Wednesday June 21, 1950. It was the brainchild of Phil Isley who owned a dozen Dallas theaters and three in California. He was best known as the father of the gorgeous, Academy Award winning actress, Jennifer Jones.
The venture was joined by the Scott Family and within a couple months Isley was gone making the Plains Drive-In a part of the Scott Theater firm. It was in operation until the 1970’s, but became ignored by fans and closed without fanfare nor a whimper from historians.
No one seemed to mind when bulldozers moved in crushing it into oblivion. Today the site is covered by all kinds of businesses, but a few people remember it and were touched by its passing.
