It was rebuilt after the Lake View tornado. We lived near the theater and my Dad had a morning radio program in the radio station in front on North Chadbourne. Saw my first movie here when I was 5, December 1963. My aunt took my brother and I to a double feature and we stayed for the first one, The Sword in the Stone.

My grandfather said that a tornado took it down. 1953. My grandfather also said that he has speakers from that drive in sitting on the post outside his house. He brought them home to fix them, but he forgot about them and they have been there since. I asked him about this theater, but that is all the info he remembers so far. He worked for R&R, and he said it became Concho theaters before it was Rowley United. Any info on that?
