Texan Drive-In

The Texan Drive-In was opened by 1953 when it was operated by Bob Owens. By 1955 it was operated by Carl Freeman. There is a nice color photo of the screen tower online, a news report from 1958 that the screen had been been blown down in a windstorm, and a grainy newspaper photo of the screen after being damaged in yet another windstorm in 1962, mentioning the theatre was “just south of Pecos, on Highway 17”.

Found It!

The address is 7 County Road 204, Pecos, TX.

A 1973 topo map shows the drive-in at that location next to HWY 17 on the south side of Pecos. Although the entrance road is not shown, a good guess is that it was somewhere on County Road 204 since the railroad tracks run alongside HWY 17.

Today, the Pecos RV Park occupies the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.
