#100365 Fort Worth Drive-In Theatres

Posted by electricman on 03 January 2017 - 02:20 PM

This is not exactly about a drive-in in Fort Worth, but it was an outdoor theater. In the early 50`s In Ridglea on Camp Bowie was a vacant lot right next to Camp Bowie, around the 6000 block. The Ridglea Merchants built a plywood movie screen and would show old movies and advertisments of the different stores in the area. The shows were free, you just needed to bring a lawn chair. Later a Hudson filling station was built on the lot and now there is a Jack In The Box in it`s place.
