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”.

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

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).
