Information for this tour was contributed by Randy Carlisle.
This drive-in opened around 1949. It was "twinned" sometime around 1975 and closed around 1985. It has since been demolished, leaving only a few remnants to see.
An article in the 8/6/1968 edition of the Kilgore News Herald reported that Jefferson Amusements and East Texas Theatres Inc had sold their operations to Golden Triangle Theatres Inc. The same article indicated that all theaters owned by Golden Triangle would be operated by Gulf States Theatres.
