The Rio Grande Valley Has Two Drive-in Theaters

I was reading through the current issue of the Mesquite Review. There is an article by Lisa Valadez about the drive-in theaters here in the RGV. We used to have one until recently when a new theatre, The Cactus Drive-In, opened.

McAllen used to have the Buckhorn Drive-In on the expressway. Towards the end, it wasn't as good because the surrounding area was developing and more lighting was installed, which interfered with the ability to see the movies. As a kid, I used to go with my family. It was a lot of fun. You take whatever food you want. You can lay in the bed of your truck or on the hood with a radio to listen to the movie. If you get a chance, be sure to visit one of the existing theatres.
