Hillsboro Drive-In

The Hill Drive-In opened August 3, 1950 with Robert Preston in “The Sundowners”. A.E. McLain was the manager, assistant manager was Wayne Young and it was operated by Robb & Rowley United Corp. The drive-in was built by Tom Griffing Drive-In Theater Construction Company of Abilene. A storm destroyed the screen in the late-1950’s. It was replaced with a plain metal support type tower. In May 1971 storms ripped up the screen again and the theatre was closed for good.

A lawnmower repair shop had used the concession building at one time, but now another business is using it. A few of the ramps remain. Other building have been built near the front of the property. The marquee is us by thos business’s.

A closer address is 4377 TX-22, Hillsboro, TX. The drive-in sat west of the town and today it is the home to a few businesses, including the Warehouse Outlet of Texas.

You can still see the hint of ramps that were part of the drive-in between the businesses.

On Street View it looks like the old marquee may have been repurposed for the storage facility. It is definitely a different looking sign.
