Glen Cooper opened the Dodge City Drive-In on March 29, 1950. He kicked off the grand opening with a Randolph Scott movie, "The Doolins of Oklahoma". Adult admission was .55 cents and children were admitted free. By 1955, it had been renamed Boot Hill Drive-In, and was operated by Mrs Glen A. Cooper.

Tistletoehead—
I don’t know why I take time to post pictures or information since
you seem to be some kind of an expert.
Of course it showed westerns, cause that is all I cared about as a
boy.
At least I kept everything, and for pleasure for those like you who
know everything I have made available hundreds of pictures for Don’s Flickers.
Check them out, and see how many is real or phony.
If you don’t like westerns, then don’t look, because I don’t look at yours

Uploaded an not very sharp photo of the drive-in. It was on Hwy 50 past Matt Down road.

Approx. location for this drive-in is the trailer park off Hwy 50 west of Matt Down. Look for 27th and 28th Avenues.

I have a spooky memory of this drive-in from the 1980’s…my family & I had driven in from a nearby town to see a movie at a Dodge City drive-in. But, apparently, the drive-in we were looking for was the South Drive-In, NOT the Boot Hill Drive-In, which was already a ghost theater then!!! (Though still standing) Imagine, it is twilight and from the distance, this looks like an operating drive-in, but then when you drive up the entrance road, you suddenly find that it is empty and over-grown with weeds….very spooky….

A closer address (at least for Google) is 800 27th Ave, Dodge City, KS which puts it on the property where the drive-in once stood. It’s certainly not the original address, but that does not exist anymore. So, for mapping accuracy purposes, this address works just fine.

A trailer park occupies most of where the drive-in once stood. Today, there is no trace of the drive-in remaining. http://tinyurl.com/kv3eh64
