In 1956 it parked 850 cars making it that city’s largest Drive-in. It was owned by Breaden&Beeson.

One of the things I remember most about Texas during my stay there in the summer of 1991, lots and lots of open land and lots and lots of abandoned drive ins, even explored a few of them!

My fading memory remembers the drive in picture with the Red Raider on his horse.
