Why the name Varia? Is the Alamo Motel and the Borden Milk Company still there on either side? Whats on the Varia Drive-in Theatre site now?

Could that have been the Showtown Drive-In, Highway 80W and Shaw Road?

There was another drive-in about ¾ mile to the west, also on US 80 near Valley Street. I-20 goes over it now. Does anyone know the name of that drive-in?

What was cool about passing the Varia Drive-In was the Alamo Motel next to it and the Borden Milk Company on the other side with that giant cow on the sign. Saw THE WIZARD OF MARS here.
