A closer address is 144 Moursund Blvd, San Antonio, TX. The drive-in straddled between Moursund Blvd. and Pleasanton Road. The address is the South Trust Bank which now occupies part of the property.

A 1955 aerial (featured in the photo page) show the drive-in operational. A 1963 aerial shows the drive-in intact, but obviously closed. By 1966 it was demolished.

Today, most of the property is still an open field with the bank sitting in the middle. You can barely make out the faded ramps and even the foundation of the concession stand/projector booth has eroded away.
