The Gemini Drive-in was located
at the northeast corner of the Forest Lane/Central Expressway intersection in
Dallas. It was demolished in the late 1980s. If I remember correctly it was in
1988. It was originally a twin theatre hence the name Gemini but a 3rd screen
was added on the far north end of the theater at one time. These amazing photos
are slides Steve Dirkx shot after the theater was closed. Steve took these
before the theater became badly vandalized. The concession building eventually
burned just before it was finally demolished; a very similar fate that the poor
Astro Drive-In would suffer years later. A very huge thanks to Steve
for these photos which are most likely the finest remaining photos of the Gemini
This is the large sign by the ticket booth/entry. The red Gemini Theatre section rotated. This sign was really huge. I vividly remember it laying on the ground by the entry after it was cut down.
