Jones Drive-In...Weatherford Texas

The Jones Drive-In opened around 1948 by Carlos and Bertha Jones, and had parking for 385 cars. The Joneses operated the drive-in until 1975, when it was sold to a new owner, who operated the theater until the mid-1980’s, when it closed. The Jones Drive-In was later also known as the Weatherford Drive-In.

After closing as a drive-in, the property was used for many years as an auto auction, with the screen tower converted into living space for the owner. It has been vacant for some time, but was recently put up for sale.

Unfortunately, the drive-in was destroyed on August 14th, 2004 by a blaze, leaving only the remains of the screen tower.

Looks like a Walden ranch supply was built on the site.

I believe that the drive in was opened in 1948.I worked there as a field boy in 1959-1961.It was an after school job.I also worked at the ticket booth and changed the marquee when the movie changed.I have many great memories of my time there.A lady by the name of Connie Pruitt ran the concession,she was a very nice lady and made what I thought was the best hamburgers in town.Truman Greer was my boss and ran the projectors.He was a great boss and a lot of fun.I am 73 now so it was a lone time ago.My take home pay was $8.97 per week,but on my night off I could bring a date and watch the movie for free.WHAT A TIME IT WAS.
