South Park Drive-In
The South Park Drive-In was just south of Beaumont, TX, near Lamar University. I lived in Beaumont for a few months in 1981/1982 and, needing to burn a roll of black-and-white film, drove around shooting random photos. Drive-ins had long passed their heydey and this theatre had, obviously, been closed for some time. Beaumont artist Randy Welborn's Moments to Remember series includes a lovely painting of the theatre in happier days.
It's not a question of growth, it's a question of distribution of wealth.
