Antelope Drive-In

Located to the north of town on I-27. The Antelope Drive-In was opened by 1955 when it was operated by George Reed. It was soon operated by W.A. Waters who also operated the Nu-Vu Theatre, an indoor theatre in town. In 1958 he sold it to Wilf Darden & his wife. Waters granddaughter Peggy and her husband Bernie Joe Greenwood had managed the drive at some time. The Antelope Drive-In was still open in 1957.

A church is now on the property.

The drive-in sat on the SOUTH side of Abernathy, not the north. While the address is correct, Google is having a tough time mapping it. A 1978 aerial photo shows the drive-in to be demolished.

Today, the St. Isadore Catholic Church sits on the property. You can still see the faint outline of the ramps on the west side of the property.
