Not Quite the Last Picture Show

But close. Photo at link.

SHARE YOUR STORY: San Antonio's Last Drive-In Shut Down for Good? | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News: "A drive-in movie theater, one of the last in the state, could now be shut down for good, News 4 WOAI learned Monday.

The Mission Drive-In was supposed to reopen for Spring Break, but vandalism forced owners to keep it closed. The theater has been open for nearly 50 years, and it is the last outdoor theater in San Antonio.

The drive-in closes every winter, and neighbors told News 4 WOAI vandalism there is not uncommon. But, this winter, it got worse, and the owners said it may be too expensive to repair."

I love drive-in theaters. Been taking pictures of them for years. Shiner was supposed to open a drive-in theater last year. Haven't been over to see if they made it, and it's not listed on driveinmovie.com/TX.htm
but the site doesn't appear to be updated regularly.

You don't happen to have a photo of the Parkway Drive-In in Mexia, Texas, do you? I've been looking for one for a long time.
