Drive-In Theater, Paris Texas
In January of 2006 I went out to Paris Texas to check out a lead on some old civil defense items. I ran up to see if the drive-in theater was still there while I was in town. This theater is on the north side of town between the square and the north loop. I can't remember what the name of the street it's off of but it's the main drag through the north part of town. I was surprised to find a very old drive-in. It's got kind of an art-deco look to it. I started to walk around to the back but it looked like there was some newer type of house back where the projection building would have been on the property so I didn't go any further back than the ticket booth. I could see that the speaker posts were still in place back on the lot.

This wood-frame ticked booth was still pretty much intact. It didn't look like it was as old as the screen. The remains of the concrete driveway can be seen to the right of the booth.

Here's a side view of the screen tower. Obviously a larger screen was added at one time. The screen tower is concrete. Pretty serious construction for a drive-in theater. I guess that's why the thing is still standing!
