From Boxoffice, June 24, 1950: “P.V. Williams of Munday and Clyde Williams of Knox City have broken ground on a new drive-in theatre between Munday and Knox City.” That was probably the Sunset.

Elmo Hooser was probably related to T.J. Hooser, business partner of P.V. Williams. Williams managed the pair’s theaters in Munday while Hooser managed the Ritz and Texas in Seymour. The pair were also partners in a drive-in at Brazos.

The drive-in is located on TX-222 about 4 miles west of Munday, and is surrounded by farmland. As you are heading west out of town on 222, the drive-in would have been on your left, after the road bends to the south. It appears to be completely demolished in the present-day aerial photos.

Here is a 1966 aerial photo for the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS:
