The cleanup and restoration have begun at the historical Town & Country Drive-In Theatre. What vandals destroyed is currently being restored by a group of West Texans wanting to preserve the heritage of an historic Abilene site.

Once billed as the biggest drive-in theatre in Texas, the ol' T&C (what we used to call it back in the day) brings back fond memories for me. I know I'd like to be able to go back and see my favorite films there. There is plenty to do to get the T&C up and running again.

The first movie I ever saw there was "Aloha, Bobby and Rose". The film featured a 1968 Camaro and I had one, so of course it became my favorite movie. Then there was all the great music that I was introduced to. Back then it was called Top-40 and included tunes by singers like Elton John, Ringo Starr, and others (see the video above).

My first-ever date was to the Town & Country Drive-In. I also had my first-ever thin-crust pepperoni pizza there. So it's great that many local business owners and volunteers are organizing to keep the memories alive. As for the ongoing process of reviving the T&C, you can reach out to the owners/administrators through their Facebook page.
