Bob, here is a little bit of info for you on the HI-NABOR DRIVE-IN .

My source was the 1956 MOTION PICTURE ALMANAC that i found in the trash at the Miller theatre. I knew this book would come in handy. Any more HOUSTON area DRIVE-in needed let me know .

I worked in the concession stand at the HI NABOR Drive-in Theater when I was 15 years old,you simply would not believe the fun we had in that place,VERY GOOD MEMORIES!!

PS-Originally the HI HABOR was going to be two screen theater but the second screen was never built,it remained a huge weed filled lot behind the concession stand,the configuration would have two screens facing each other with the concession stand in the middle,that’s why the concession stand was at the very back of the lot.
