This drive-in was at the northwest corner of Hillcroft Street and Bellaire Boulevard in Houston, Texas.
It operated from 1958 to the 1980’s. It had a car capacity of 1,281. The theatre started out as a family place, with a merry-go-round and a children’s train that gave rides around the base of the screen and went through a ‘tunnel’ at the base of the screen, which was huge. As time wore on, the place became seedier, less frequented because city lights began to interfere with the experience. The place began showing lower-quality films, even soft-core porn. We used to go to it often in the mid-1960’s. It was last operated by Tercar Theatres and closed in 1976
The lot on which the theatre stood is now a strip mall.
