A closer address (at least for Google) is 901 S Velasco St, Angleton, TX.

Today, the Angleton Water Barn sits on the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

A 1961 aerial photo shows a drive-in at that location with only one screen.

Perhaps it was later rebuilt with two screens?

The Round Up drive in sustained major damage from Hurricane Carla in 1961. It remained closed until 1969 when it was finally repaired and reopened under the name of the Brazos Twin. In 1982, the drive in was damaged again. This time by Hurricane Alicia and was never repaired or reopened. The last operator was Ralph Wiest. All though there was no activity on the property, most of the facilities were still there into the early 90’s. The drive in was located between El Lago Road and Larkspur Road on Brazosport Blvd N. The large metal building on the property was once a dance hall place. In 2017 a new business came in. The concrete foundation of the old concession bldg. is still visible.
