Midway Drive In – Sweetwater, TX

The Midway Drive In, just outside the city limits of Sweetwater, Texas, was owned by Jack Wallace back in the fifties. His son, J. D., and his wife, Dorothy, ran the theater, and the projectionist at the time was a man named Billy Faught. The ticket office was several yards from the the snack bar, and you could stop on the way in and be served from the drive through window, and J.D. could walk out the door if he suspected someone sneaking in with a trunk load of teenagers.  The Midway Drive-In had a capacity for 320 cars.
