Anson Drive-in Opens Monday
ANSON, Texas, Sunday, July 1, 1950. (RNS)
Opening of the Twilite, Anson’s new drive-in theater, is set for Monday evening, it was announced by Will Pence, owner of the new enterprise.
The cost will run slightly above the original contract price of $43,000, Pence stated. Fronting on Stamford Highway, the name of the drive-in is mounted on a blue background in a setting of stars.
A buff and light green color scheme is carried out on the lower pair of the 51-foot tower and on the entrance wings. Cars will enter at the south end tower and exit on the north. The 21 by 511 foot projection building, constructed of tile combined with frame and metal siding is also painted buff and green.
The Twilite Drive-In has a capacity of 300 cars and is equipped with in-the-car speakers. Ramps and speakers and other installations for the theater occupy practically all of the eight acres bought from A. J. Smilli Sr. for the theater. The site is part of the 18-acre plot of acreage adjoining Smith’s Northside addition to Anson.
On opening night the the ticket booth will open at 7 o'clock and the initial show will start at dusk. Pence went to Dallas Wednesday to arrange the opening night bill.
The M. L. Montgomery Construction Company of Breckenridge was the general contractor for the theater.
