    Nice Old Drive Ins

    Drive Ins once dotted the Texas landscape. Here are a couple of very nice Texas Drive Ins:



    Lufkin's not too small a town, but they have a BEAUTIFUL drive in that is still standing closed, and is wasting away. The Redland Drive in was once VERY nice. I cannot believe a community like Lufkin can't keep such a venue running.



    While looking through some old family pictures of my girlfriend's, I was surprised and delighted to see this picture of the Terrell Drive In in Terrell, Texas! I guess a new drive in theatre in town was a big deal in 1947!

    This screen blew down, and a cheap screen without an attached building was erected. The Terrell Drive In was where the movie "Drive In" was filmed in the mid 70s. It was called the Alamo drive in when featured in this "classic" film!
