Chuck; In the 1955 edition of Theatre Catalog, it lists both the Pampa Drive-In & the Top Of Texas Drive-In, both operated by Video Ind. Theatres, but with a slightly different car capacity.

The Top O Texas Theater was moved from the north part of town to the former Pampa Drive In site in the early ‘80’s because a Wal-Mart was built there. The new one was a twin drive in. They just added another screen to the original one. There were even plans to add a third screen if it had been successful.

Looks like the address for this one would be 1432 S Barnes St, Pampa, TX 79065. South Barnes takes over from South Cuyler Street about a mile north of this former DI. A 1962 Historic Aerial shows a single screen on this site, the 1996 Historic Aerial shows what looks like at least 3 screens had been there. The marquee is still standing at the southern end of the property
