Billboard, July 17, 1954: “A. M. Gaines. owner of Bronco Drive-In, Beeville, Tex., has announced he will build a second drive-in on the Refugio Highway near that city. Gaines will install wide screens in both theaters.”

The highway to Refugio is Texas 202, but even in a 1974 USGS aerial, I can’t find a trace of a drive-in. My guesses would be either the housing development that starts at 2101 Lexington Rd, or where the new US 181 now crosses 202. Neither was there in a 1956 topo map but both were there in the 1974 aerial.
