The King’s Drive-In opened June 9, 1949 with Bud Abbott & Lou Costello in “The Wistful Widow of Wagon Gap”. It was located on the east corner of King’s Highway and Patton Street (now Patton Avenue). It was owned by Lone Star Theatres of Dallas and managed by R. Allen Jones of Shreveport. Its screen was 30x30 feet, and its lot held 600 cars.
By October 29, 1955, the King’s Drive-In was co-owned by Shipp Bullard, who told Boxoffice that the drive-in (then called the “King Drive-In”) had been dismantled and would be moved to a new location in Shreveport where it would hold 800 cars. A 1959 aerial photo of the old location showed it replaced by a building. The Broadmoor Branch of the Shreve Memorial Library occupies the site today.
