Tascosa Drive-In To Reopen

An Amarillo landmark filled with memories is opening back up after being closed since October.

The Tascosa Drive-In Theater has been around since the 1950s. The previous owners of the theater, the Burns, bought it in 1999. They recently retired and closed the theater. Since then, it has has been unclear if it would reopen or not.

The DeWietz family is now the new owners of the drive-on theater. Their first step is making the theater more modern.

The DeWeitz’s on-site playground will also be remodeled and dedicated to the Burn’s two sons. They have also applied for their beer and wine license, and the concession stand will also see upgrades, including patrons to order by phone.

These upgrades will take time and money, but they are ready to reinvest all earnings back into the drive-in.

The first movie to play under new ownership will be Deadpool & Wolverine in two weeks.
