Crockett,Texas is suppose to have a beautiful restored downtown theatre. I have a Classmate from High School that lives there and she said it was a gem. Didn’t know about the Rio drive-in.

As Ken wrote it parked 250 cars in 1956 and the owners were Robb&Rowley. Mary Sue why didn’t you tell me about the old Drive-in?
