Located in the acute angle of property formed by the intersection of U.S Hwy 67 (now Interstate 30) and Belt Line Road east of Dallas. The Belt Line-67 Drive-In was opened in March 1965. Operated by Leon Theatres, it was closed in October 1973. Scar of the parking area is still easily visible on GoogleMaps.

Today, on the edge of the property that once was occupied by the marquee for the drive in, is now a Racetrac? Gas Station/Convenience store. Nothing remains of the Belt Line/67 drive in. It sat right behind where the KROGER Grocery store occupies the land today…….

C.D. Leon of Leon Theaters was back in business with the late 1964 opening of the Town & Country Drive-In and the March 1965 opening of the Belt Line – 67 Drive-In. The former operator of the Garland Road Drive-In, as well as the Hampton Road and Denton Road drive-ins, Leon co-owned the Belt Line – 67 with James McQuad. Leon billed it as the first drive-in in the Southwest equipped to run 70mm film. The theater opened with 1,000 spaces and 1,000 speakers. The theater was included in a $4 million spurt in Dallas area movie theaters. The first two features on March 11, 1965 were “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World” and “Beauty and the Body”. It appears to close for the season at the end of October 1973 and there are no more advertisements for the Belt Line 67.
