In the Shadows of Downtown

Not sure you would notice but in the lower right corner is a large white screen. This is one of the three movie screens of a new drive in movie being built in the shadows of downtown Ft. Worth . The Coyote Drive-In will boast three screens showing first run movies....

and parking capacity for 4,000 cars...all tuned in via their car radios. Also on the property is a 10,00 square foot covered open air pavilion, with concession, play area, a stage and a 1-acre landscaped beer garden.

Of course, I found them in the building stage. The friendly General Manager lead me on a tour in his golf cart. He was very enthusiastic and I wish him luck. Dive in movies were very popular back in the 1950's and 60's in the U.S. Did you ever go to one?

  1. It always fascinated me those open air movies. We don't know that here.

  2. I'd love to go to another drive-in movie; nostalgia. We were BAD kids as we developed ways to sneak into the theatre; never got caught but it sure was stuffy in the trunk of a car!

  3. kind of neat that they're building a new one. good luck to them!
