Approx. location for this drive-in is FM 3363 & County Road 546, now in Eastland, TX 76448. The theatre stood north of this intersection.

The Dixie was just north of what is now a mobile home park at 117 Co Rd 546, Eastland, TX 76448. It’s not within the Eastland city limits, but Olden is unincorporated and Google Maps uses that Eastland address even for the old Dixie site.
