Playground remnants at foot of screen

Ancient drive in, with playground intact, and that was 30 years ago. The Trail Drive-In was opened by 1950 when it was operated by R.A. Noret. By 1953 it was operated by B.E. Garner. By 1955 it was operated by William Creagh. It was still open in 1970.

Found It!

I could not get an exact address on Google Maps. So, the closest location I could get was US-180 and O'Neal Drive, Breckenridge, TX.

The drive-in sat about ¼ mile east of the intersection on the north side of US-180. The drive-in appears brand new in a 1954 aerial (as you might expect) and still intact in a 1983 aerial. By 1995, it had been demolished.

Today, you can still see the ramps and foundations for the screen. There is a structure that resembles a ticket booth, but it’s not in the right place so I cannot say for certain that it is the ticket booth.

I believe I’ve found the Corral Drive-In, but I cannot be 100% sure.

It sat west of town on the south side of US-180 at approximately 3005 W Walker Street, Breckenridge, TX. The entrance is now a parking lot that sits between the Regency Inn and Ernie’s Spanish Kitchen.

The drive-in appears in a 1954 aerial photo, but by 1960 it had been demolished. The area appears to have been landscaped with a small business that sat on the SE corner of where the drive-in once stood, but that has now been demolished.

There is no trace of the drive-in remaining. If someone can confirm the Corral Drive-in closing before 1960, then this is probably it.
