The 25-year old Austin Drive-In was in the portfolio at its final years of the Video Independent Theatre (VIT) Circuit. It ceased operations of the Austin on October 12, 1971 and many of the employees reported for work at the Austin’s replacement, VIT’s new 82nd Street Twin Drive-In which opened on October 13, 1971 with a free showing of “"With Six You Get Eggroll.” The theatre then had its official Grand Opening the next night with “Tora, Tora, Tora.” The $200,000 twin had two 40'x100' screens.
