Judson 4 Drive-In

This drive-in theatre was opened July 1, 1977 and featured four screens. There may have been one more screen built making it Judson 5 Drive-In. The demise was when the widening of the Highway 35 was initiated, taking some of the land and resulting in the removing of one screen. Closed in mid-1980’s.

The Judson 4 was owned and operated by the late Maurice Braha. The snack bar was very nice, and had a good assortment of delicious food. The projection room was state of the art, and was even air conditioned! The screens were smaller than most modern drive ins, but the picture quality was good. The lots were not paved, and a lot of dust was kicked up when it was dry. The Judson was the last drive in built in San Antonio, and had the shortest life span.

A 1983 aerial shows the drive-in was not connected to Judson Road. The two entrance/exit roads were located on the I-36 Frontage and Toepperwein Roads respectively.

The address of the hospital which sits on the southside of the property is on Judson Road. But the buildings on the northside are connected to the I-35 Frontage Road.
