The Hillcrest Drive-In was on north side of Ballinger which was on the opposite side of town from the Horseshoe Drive-In. It was opened prior to 1955 when it was operated by Scales & Scales. It seems to have been open until the late-1950’s. As recently as 2002 the original driveway and a couple of movie poster showcases remained visible.

Hwy 83 and the highway to Bronte are not the same. The Hillcrest was on what is now highway 158.

IN 1956 it was owned by H&H Theatres and parked 300 cars.

This was located at the west end of town. Approx. location for this drive-in was just west of North Broadway & Conda Avenue.
