Why was it called Austin(it’s not in Austin, Texas)?

Opened May 14, 1946 as Austin’s Drive-In Theatre with “Meet Me In St. Louis.” Closed October 12, 1971 as the Austin Drive-In Theatre with “The Dirty Dozen” and “Shaft.” Not a bad way to go! The next night, many of the Austin employees would shift to the 82nd St. Twin Drive-In that was built to replace the 25-year old Austin. The Austin was very likely at the end of a lease cycle.

Listed as far back as 1946. Closed in 1971 when the 82nd St. Twin DI opened.

From 1968-1971 The Austin Drive in was owned by my great grandparents, Earl Austin.
