Boxoffice, April 27, 1970: “Acquisition of … the Beltline 67 Drive-In … was announced by B. R. McLendon and Robert Hartgrove, chairman of the board and president, respectively, of McLendon Theatres … The Beltline-67 was purchased from a syndicate of owners headed by Leon Theatres of Santa Fe, James McQuaid of Garland, Dollen Russell of Dallas, and G. S. Hill of Santa Fe. McLendon expressed pleasure at the acquisition of the 900-car Beltline, which has a distinctive frontier-style architecture”

Does anyone have any info on the Town & Country Drive-In? I believe it was located in the vicinity of the intersection of Plano Rd and Buckingham, and that this was the second location of that theatre (the first was on farmland nearby).

C.D. Leon of Leon Theaters was back in business with the late 1964 opening of the Town & Country Drive-In and the March 1965 opening of the Belt Line – 67 Drive-In. The former operator of the Garland Road Drive-In, as well as the Hampton Road and Denton Road drive-ins, Leon co-owned the Belt Line – 67 with James McQuad. Leon billed it as the first drive-in in the Southwest equipped to run 70mm film. The theater opened with 1,000 spaces and 1,000 speakers. The theater was included in a $4 million spurt in Dallas area movie theaters. The first two features on March 11, 1965 were “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World” and “Beauty and the Body”. It appears to close for the season at the end of October 1973 and there are no more advertisements for the Belt Line 67.

Today, on the edge of the property that once was occupied by the marquee for the drive in, is now a Racetrac? Gas Station/Convenience store. Nothing remains of the Belt Line/67 drive in. It sat right behind where the KROGER Grocery store occupies the land today…….
