Donald E. Wernli built this theatre as well as the Silverton Motor Vu Drive In, and also purchased the Rio Theatre in Dallas, now the Fox Theatre. Originally the screen was square with a black border around it. Photo will be posted on website at www.dallasmotorvu.com When Cinemascope came, the screen was modifed to accept the new wide format. Each side was built out to accept the new format. The Drive In is currently being upgraded. The Snack Bar with have a 50’s car theme. The screen will be painted front and back, and many other updates throughout.
