A movie ad from 1959 for the Corral Drive In in Lubbock.

The only movie I ever saw there was the 1967 “The Taming of the Shrew” with Taylor/Burton. It was an ‘okay’ drive-in, but because it was on the far northeast side of town, it took forever to get there! That was before the Loop was finished.

Approx. address for the drive-in was 2300 North Ash Ave. Freeway ramps run through most where the theatre stood.

By using this 1963 obscure ad (in Photo Section) from the Avalanche Journal, the approximate location of the Corral Drive-In was found to be 4012 Ida Lou Highway. It is on Historic Aerials beginning in 1958. An outline of the drive-in can be seen on all aerial maps.

The 2300 Ash address is most likely the Country club/Lone Star Drive-In since it is near the Lubbock Country Club.
