The Crescent Drive-In was open in 1952. In the later-1960’s it played adult films followed by Spanish speaking films until it closed in 1977. In the late-1970’s it was operated by Video Independent Theatres.

Any further information on the Crescent Drive-In would be appreciated.

The Crescent Drive-in parked 400 cars and in the late fifties it was owned by O.M. Kirkeby.

Can anyone come up with an address or a crossroad so we can pinpoint the site of this drive-in?

The Crescent Drive-in was located at 4275 S Treadaway Blvd, Abilene, TX 79602.

This address will map to the exact location of the drive-in. S. Treadwell Blvd was formerly Hwy 83, before the bypass was built.

I remember it was painted black and orange. The Crescent tool and supply company is located beside where it was.
