Fiesta Drive-In

This was the original Fiesta Drive-In in El Paso, not the current location there. According to comments posted to the later version’s Cinema Treasures page, the original Fiesta Drive-In opened on February 7, 1950 It was operated by W.O. Beardon & J.B. Beeson.

It may have closed and moved to the modern Montana Avenue location in 1981.
