Top O Texas Drive-In

Opened June 23, 1950 with Maureen O'Hara in “Bagdad”. At that time Pampa, Texas was a booming oil town. It was located on north edge of town. Later, Northcrest development was built behind it. It closed in the 1970’s where a WalMart replaced it.

After the Top of Texas drive in closed, it was rebuilt on the edge of another part of the city and renamed Pampa DI Theater.

I noticed the address of the Top O' Texas Theater is listed at 2215 North Hobart on the advertisement.

jforman is correct.


Now Trinity Fellowship Church, NOT WALMART.

Malcolm, when the Top O' Texas Drive In closed, it was moved to the old Pampa Drive In site on the south side of Pampa. The old screen was still standing and another was added to make a twin. It was called the Top O' Texas Twin Drive In. The original Pampa Drive In had been closed since the early ‘60s.
