The Cowtown Drive-In opened on September 2, 1950 with Gregory Peck in “The Gunfighter”. It ran third run movies. The rear of the screen tower had a painted mural of a steer, with the Fort Worth skline in the background. When first opened, patrons drove up to the ticket office and were served by long-legged cowgirls dressed in Texas regalia!

It was closed 1964 and reopened July 1, 1966, finally closing in 1984.
