The El-Co Drive-In was opened on May 18, 1952 with Alan Young in “Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick”. The El-Co Drive-In was small with only a 182 car capacity. It was originally constructed of wood, and subsequently burnt down around 1963. A new theatre was built of concrete blocks, which operated until at least 1975. It was toppled in a wind storm.
In November-2011, a new drive-in theatre was constructed and opened in Shattuck, and the owners managed to secure the name rights of ‘El-Co’. The name El-Co is derived from the name of the county town of Shattuck which is located in Ellis County, hence ‘El-Co’.
