The Texon Drive-In was located in the booming town of Texon, TX., southeast of the intersection of Texon Road and Highway 67. The town at one time had as many as 1,200 residents. Strictly an oil boom town, it has withered away to virtually nothing. Last report was there is only 1 partially burned out building (the old scout hut) still standing where the town once stood.

Last time I went through town last year there were still 4-5 abandoned buildings still standing, apparently even those are now gone.

Lots of ghost towns around, I’ll bet very few were big enough to have a theater. Anything to keep the oil field employees happy!

Most of the theaters I run across in West Texas have been closed for so many years, it’s unlikely anything of value remains inside.

I did get lots of pics of the remaining Texon buildings before they were bulldozed. Sad to think people lived there, in the middle of nowhere. Nice and quiet though.
