This was the first drive-in built in San Antonio and opened as the Drive-In on October 23, 1940 with Gene Raymond in “The Life of the Party”. By 1955 it had been renamed Fredericksburg Road Drive-In and was operated by Underwood & Ezell. When it opened the back of the screen faced the road and it had a large mural of an actress painted on it. Later a clown replaced the actress and then an abstract painting replaced the clown. The Fredericksburg Drive-In had a long life lasting until 1982.
The site is now a shopping center and an apartment complex. The old roadside marquee is now used to list the shops in the shopping center. It had a 552 car capacity.
