Arlington Drive-In

The Arlington Drive-In was operated by Southwest Theatres on December 24, 1950 with Randolph Scott in “Abilene Town”. By 1952 it was operated by Charles W. Weisenburg of W.F.W. Theatres out of Dallas, TX. It was still open in 1957 and in late-1968 it was twinned. It was demolished in the late-1970’s.

It had 2 screens. It was twinned around 1970. After the drive in was demolished, the second field remained until the early 2000’s (all empty).

The concession building is still standing on the property being used as some sort of office.

The Arlington Drive-In opened its gates by Southwest Theatres on Christmas Eve 1950 with Randolph Scott in “Abilene Town” (unclear if any short subjects were added). The theater originally had a car capacity of 550 but expanded to 600 when it was twinned in late-1968.

Note: The theater was named “Arlington Drive-In” throughout its entire life. There is no sign of the theater’s previous name as just simply “Drive-In”.
