The Star Drive-In was built in 1948 by M. Dale and B. Leon Littlefield. It was located at W. Trevino Street and N. Larriette Lane. By 1955 it was operated by Van Chamberlain. In 1961, a Spanish-language drive-in opened in Falfurrias and this could have been the location of that operation as well.

In a roundup of seasonal reopenings in the March 28, 1960 issue of Boxoffice: “Gustavo Vasquez, owner of the Longhorn Drive-In, Hebbronville, is soon to reopen the Star Drive-In at Falfurrias … Raul Soliz is building a new drive-in at Falfurrias.”

A 1965 topo map places a drive-in to the northwest of the present-day intersection of Trevino Street and Lariette. The closest address that Google Maps likes is 516 W Trevino St. Since the drive-in is so close to town, I’d guess it was the first one in Falfurrias. The site is now home to the baseball diamond at Falfurrias High School.
