Mission 4 Drive-in Theatre
San Antonio, TX

 

The Mission 4 Drive-in Theatre located on the South Side of San Antonio, TX has been an area landmark since 1948. Since its opening as a single-screener, the Mission expanded to four screens in the late 1970's and has shown first-run movies for almost 50 years.
