Rick Smith a newspaper columist for the San Angelo Standard-Times wrote in 2009 that the Angelo Twin Trive-In was built in 1969 as the city’s first twin-screen drive-in. A Historic Aerials photo places it near the modern-day equivalent of 4525 Sherwood Way.

The Angelo Twin Drive-In’s first appearance in the Motion Picture Almanac series was 1977, which shows just how bad the MPA was about updating its drive-in lists in the early-1970’s. At the time, the drive-in was owned by the United Artists Theatre Circuit, Rowley United Division. The Angelo Twin Drive-In stayed on the MPA list through 1988, the MPA’s final drive-in list. The MPA never mentioned the Angelo’s capacity, so my estimate of 600 is based on the aerial photo. By the 1996 aerial, it was gone.
