This theatre was located in the parking lot outside of Texas Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys played. The screens raised and lowered via hydraulics so that the screens could be retracted on game days.

The snack bar building was turned into the Cowboys' pro-shop. One of the screens had been kept as a storage shed long after the theatre had closed; the retracted screen acting as the roof.

Photos and information on this drive-in were featured in the Modern Theatre section of Boxoffice magazine dated February 19, 1973.
