Thanks lostmemory. The Tiger was a drive in. The info that I dug up says it was located around 25th and College or the Colorado City highway. College turns into highway 84, connects with 208 and leads to Colorado City.
If anyone recalls Jennifer Jones a screen star from the past and one time wife of David O Selznik, it turns out that her father built the Tiger.

Jennifer Jones, born Phyllis Isley, won an Oscar for “Song of Bernadette” (1943), produced by husband David O. Selznick. She’s still alive, as far as I know.

The Tiger Drive In was the Canyon Drive In until the mid 1970’s. It was located on College Ave. (then called Ave S or Hwy 350). The exact location is the old Walmart store in Snyder. The theatre sat between College Ave. and Prairie Dog Town in the park. The entrance/exit was off College Ave, right before the turn in to Towle Park.
