Opened prior to 1948, the Loop Drive-In was located north of Temple at the junction of Business Route 35 and I-35. It was built by the Skelton brothers; Bowmer Skelton, future Federal Judge Byron Skelton and Bill Skelton. It had a capacity for 412 cars and there were 200 seats for walk-in patrons.
Bill Skelton painted the picture on the rear of the screen tower. He painted it on the ground using 4x8 sheeting and then supervised its installation. After it was installed, he rode a cherry picker to touch up the picture. The screen tower was 60 feet tall.
The Skelton brothers opened Temple’s second drive-in, the TemBel Drive-In in 1948.
