Ol-Worth Drive-In

The Ol-Worth Drive-In was located on State Route 114 1.5 miles east of Olney. It was operated by R.I. Payne and Frontier Theatres. Advertisements begin in 1953 and end September 26, 1965 which is likely the closing date of the o-zoner.

The drive-in sat about ¼ mile west of the TX-114/Willard Road intersection on the north side of the highway. Today, there is no trace of it remaining save perhaps for a faint outline.

Billboard, July 2, 1955: “The Ol-Worth Drive-In Theater opening at Olney, Tex., has been postponed because of wind damage, according to Billy Wilson, manager. The main structure has had to be torn down and will have to be rebuilt.”

The foundation of the concession building looks like its still there, the site is vacant except for a storage shed built on the site, it also looks like it was used for rodeo’s at some point.

A good address for the drive in would be 841 TX-114 East.

It appears that the foundation of the screen is still present. But the foundation of the concession stand/projection booth is almost all gone. Just a few pieces of concrete remain.

The large square shape in the aerials that might be mistaken for the concession stand/projection booth sits just to the northeast. It appears to have been put in after the drive-in was torn down.
