“Another theatre that opened in 1951 was the Northmain Drive-In on Main Street at Red River Boulevard. It was financed by developer Max Shnier and designed by Patricia Kettner of the architectural firm Green-Blankstein-Russell (GBR).

The 700-car Northmain Drive-In had an eclectic mix of amenities. There was a two-storey building with a concession stand and projection room on the main floor and an indoor restaurant and viewing lounge on the second. It also featured a professionally designed mini-golf course, children’s playground, mini-train, petting zoo and pony rides. It even had a monkey house."
