Tradewind Drive-In

The Johnny G. Long Theatre Circuit launched Brazorra County’s first drive-in with the Tradewind Drive-In opening June 7, 1950 with the film, “Christopher Columbus” starring Frederic March. The Tradewind Drive-In got competition just months later when the superior Surf Drive-In just to the north of it launched on October 12th that year. The Tradewind Drive-In was destroyed by Hurricane Carla on September 11, 1961.

The nearby Surf Drive-In suffered damage, and was repaired and reopened.

Found It!

The address is 2200 N Brazosport Blvd, Freeport, Texas. The drive-in appears in a 1962 aerial, but the screen appears to be down indicating that it may have closed.

Today, the property is empty save for a “Quick Mart” right at the entrance. You can still see the faint hint of ramps on the property.

Note: There is another drive-in (possibly the Surf Drive-In) located further north up 288. That property is now on Crescent Heights at the TX-288/TX-332 cloverleaf. You can still see the outline and ramps of that drive-in, but I could not get an exact address.
