Stadium Drive-In

From Variety, 1957: “Garland, Tex., August 20.

“New Stadium Drive-In Theatre has been opened here by Bill Boren, former theatre operator in Fort Worth. The ozoner has 566-car capacity. This is the 19th theatre opening for Boren.

“The drive-in is equipped with Century projectors, Strong Super 135 lamps, RCA Photophone sound-heads and Bausch & Lomb anamorphies. The concession stand is a 90 foot combination brick-and-board.”

A spot check of the Garland Daily News on May 11, 1958 shows an advertisement for the Stadium Drive-In (with phone number) next to an advertisement for the Garland Road Drive-In. The Stadium Drive-In was also listed in 1960 Film Daily Year Book, though it was gone by the 1964 edition.

I found a drive-in in a 1958 aerial at the present-day address of 2001 Glenbrook Meadows Drive in Garland on the north side. (The only other known Garland drive-in at the time, the Garland Road, was south of town.) Back then it was the middle of an empty field north of town with entry/exit paths from Buckingham Road and Glenbrook Drive.

The drive-in continued to be shown on topo maps through at least 1969, but a 1968 aerial shows the screen gone.
