El-Co Drive-In

The El-Co Drive-In was operating by 1955. The El-Co was tiny with only a 140 car capacity It was originally constructed of wood, and susequently burnt down around 1963. A new theatre was built of concrete blocks, which operated until at least 1975. It was toppled in a wind storm.

In November-2011, a new drive-in theatre was constructed and opened in Shattuck, and the owners managed to secure the name rights of ‘El-Co’. The name El-Co is derived from the name of the county town of Shattuck which is located in Ellis County, hence ‘El-Co’.
