Previously operated by: ABC Interstate Theatres
Opened on July 1, 1965. The July 26, 1965 issue of Boxoffice announced: “The new 785-car Lake Air Drive-In has been opened on U.S. Highway 84 and New Highway 6 by Lee Roy Mitchell with the showing of "Genghis Khan” starring Stephen Boyd & Omar Sharif. The $200,000 Lake Air Drive-In is the first theatre of any type built in Waco in more than a decade and the first new drive-in constructed here in 14 years.
A 1970 aerial photo showed the drive-in at the northern corner of the highway intersection. It was closed on December 8, 1974.
However, the Lake Air Drive-In’s first, belated appearance in the Motion Picture Almanac drive-in list was in the 1977 edition. Its owner was ABC Interstate, but that company’s MPA circuit list entry did not include the Lake Air Drive-In. By 1981, it had been replaced by the Richland Mall.
