April 18, 1949 Grand Opening Night and it was twined at one time also. So screen number can be changed to 2 screens.

My big sister and her husband lived for a while in Palestine, and we were taken to this drive-in. I remember the feature being Gordon Douglas' “Up Periscope”, and I also remember the large dogwood tree you drove past on your way in or out of the theater.
