According to his El Paso Times obituary, U. A. Kane, who also built the Rocket in Las Cruces NM, owned El Paso’s Rocket and Bronco drive-ins. Kane lived in El Paso for 20 years and died there in 1985.

Does anyone have any old photos of the Rocket Drive-in? Andress is celebrating its 50th anniversary this summer and several alumni are interested in the old place.
