From 1975, a movie ad for the Twin Falls Drive In Theater in Wichita Falls.

This item gives an approximate address. There is an auto salvage yard at that location now.

Southwest Pkwy & Spring Shadow Dr, Wichita Falls, TX 76310

The address above will map to the location of the drive-in.

1975 another strange booking.Great ad.Have a Falls Drive-in there in 1956,wonder if it had the name changed.

NYozoner is correct. This location is wrong. The Twin Falls was on Sheppard Access Rd. just north of Old Iowa Park Rd. Went there many times in my youth. Here is an address of a current business just a few hundred yards south of where the drive in entrance was.

My recollection is of at least three drive-in theaters in Wichita Falls. One on the north side—that would be Sheppard Access; one on the southwest side—that would be at Seymour Highway and Old Seymour Rd.; and one on Grant Street, which also had some indoor seating. And it seems as though there might even have been a fourth at some point, though I can’t remember where it was.

I remember the old Grant Street drive in theater, as my very first memory ever of attending a movie. We lived only a few blocks away on Baltimore Rd. I must have been between around 2 years old, as it was 1964-65 timeframe. The opening cartoon movie was Disney’s Fantasia, I have no idea what the main movie was but I remember having wierd nightmares as a child about all the marching brooms (LoL!) and we were in my dad’s pink Rambler station wagon with fold-down seats. I also saw movies as a child at the Seymour drive in theater. The very last movie played there at the Seymour before it closed down, if I remember correctly, was “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever” in summer of 1970. I watched it with my mother and father. The last movie I watched at the Twin Falls before it closed down was “Alien” in 1979.

The drive in location has been developed into more baseball/softball fields since 2007. The address, 1450 Shepherd Access Road is correct.
