      San Antonio's Last Drive-In Survives and Thrives

      SAN ANTONIO, TX — When the Mission Drive-In opened in 1948, it was
      one of less than 100 outdoor theaters in Texas. By the golden years
      of the drive-in, the 50s, Texas had more than 500.

      Since those days, the Mission, once just one of a number of San
      Antonio-area drive-in theaters, has survived the rise of large indoor
      megaplexes, cable, video and DVDs and the closing of all the other
      drive-ins in the area, according to a report in the San Antonio
      Express-News.

      The Mission, a four-screener today, was nearly closed by its 90s
      operator, Regal Cinemas in 2001, but was taken over that year by
      Cinemark.

      Last year, the Mission celebrated its season-opening with a 50s-
      themed including live music, food and dunking booths. Currently
      closed for winter, the Mission will reopen on March 1st.
