Definitely was open until at least at least 1979. I saw “Love at First Bite” with George Hamilton (1979) there.

Architected by Harvey A. Jordan, the Charro Drive-In launched November 4, 1949 with John Wayne’s “The Sea Spoilers” on its 40x55 foot screen. Closing date above is incorrect as the theatre operated past that date.
