Judson Four Drive-In Theater



In 1977, San Antonio businessman Louis Braha opened the Judson Four Drive-In Theater at the corner of Toepperwein Road and IH 35 North. Many movies shared their debut with the theater, some being classics like Grease and Urban Cowboy.

A few of the movies that were shown at the theater were somewhat “racy” for the time and a former worker at the theater told me that people lined up all the way down the access road of IH 35 to see Angie Dickinson in Big Bad Mama. Although not confirmed, one person even told me that for one racy movie’s debut, the theater even had girls in bikinis, roller skating around the gravel lot. If you have any information on the Judson Four Drive-In, or any other historical information on the City of Live Oak, the Live Oak Historical Committee would love to hear from you.
