The Twin Vue Drive-In was a joint project of John Foster and Jack Laird which they opened in 1953 only one week after the Twin Terrace opened on the other end of Odessa. The Twin Vue Drive-In had two giant screens and parking spaces for 1,200 cars. Laird and Foster, twenty year associates, had two prosperous years with the Twin before television took its toll and then decided to close it along with the Texas and Plaza theaters.

Surprisingly the drive-in later opened as the Holiday Drive-In and lasted another two decades.
