This address will map to the location of the drive-in. The drive-in is visible using Google Earth up until 2002.

The Walmart Super Center on Georgia is now located where the Twin Drive-in once stood. The Palo Duro Drive-in was on the other side of the Canyon E-way from it. My first movie there was “WILD ANGELS” September 12, 1966, the one starring Nancy Sinatra. The last was “COLD TURKEY” October 28, 1972. It was a very nice drive-in and stayed in business all the way into 1985. Then suddenly the front screen, the classic one seen in the photo, burned down. I think they showed a few more movies on the back screen before giving up. The land stayed vacant for almost 20 years until Walmart bought it ‘04. Walmart’s huge parking lot could hold a 3 screener.

Launched with “The Lion and the Horse” in 1952 to become Amarillo’s fifth drive-in theater behind the Trail (‘48), Palo Duro (‘48), Sunset ('49), Skyway ('50), and Twin ('52). It would be followed by the long-running Tascosa ('53) which survived into the 21st Century.
