An article about Crowley’s theaters in the June 16, 2013, issue of The Crowley Post-Signal (PDF here) says that the Trail Drive-In opened on Sunday, July 3, 1949, with the James Cagney movie Blood on the Sun. The house advertised two shows nightly, at dusk and at 10:00 PM.

The Trail Drive-In remained open until late September, 1968. Though it advertised at that time that it was closing temporarily for repairs, it appears to have never reopened.

The address is 1536 Crowley Rayne Hwy, Crowley, LA 70526. The drive-in appears to be intact in a 1971 aerial photo, but at some point afterwards was demolished.

Today, there is no trace of the drive-in left.
