Open ~1952-~1976? can anyone verify the exact dates?


1955 Claude Ezell & Associates, Inc.

1961-1975 Trans-Texas Theaters Inc., of Dallas, Earl Podolnick, President. Besides the Burnet Drive-In they had 9 other theaters all in Texas.

Though not the same as the Burnet Drive-In Sign, the Burnet Road Self Storage Sign looks like it could have been a Drive-In sign!

More info and photos are always welcome.

ndeed, it is BURNET with one “T”. Here is a better copy of my photo submitted by Mr. Cohen. See this link.


Photo was taken in the early 70’s before closure. I showed some films there as a relief operator in the early 70'. Nice drive in. There are other photos of the theater on either side of the above link.
