Fort Worth’s First Drive-In
The first drive-in to arrive in Fort Worth was built on Camp Bowie Boulevard in July of 1941. Seen under construction from the inside of this car, the Bowie Boulevard Theater featured a 60-foot screen. If you miss the glory days of drive-in movies, don’t fret. A new drive-in movie theater is planned along the Trinity River and is set to open this summer. It will feature a children’s playground, upgraded food menus and family-friendly films. More than 300,000 moviegoers are expected to attend the new drive-in theater per year.
