The Sunset Drive-In was opened on June 15, 1950 with Dick Powell in “Mrs Mike”. It was operated by Mart Cole Sr, of Cole Theatres, Rosenberg. By 1954 it was operated by Jefferson Amusement Co. It was closed by 1995. Only a faint hint of the ramps remain!

A more accurate address is 1011 US Hwy 77a N, Yoakum, TX. This is the address of the “Corner Stop”, a convenience store that sits pretty much where the screen was located.

It also appears that the construction of the airport and Airport Road itself either caused the drive-in to close or it had been closed for some time before.
