Random Image of the Week #39: The Long Time Abandoned Bonham Drive-In Theatre (Demolished)

This week’s random image was taken on a last minute, much needed road trip to East Texas. After a hard week of work near Oklahoma City. One of my stops was to document the old vintage Bonham Drive-In Theatre sign.

Bonham Drive-In Theatre

The Bonham Drive-In Theatre

The Bonham Drive-In Theatre was probably built in the fifties and it closed down sometime in the 80s. All that is left is the old marquee sign. The new land owners have demolished the only remaining building (old ticket booth) and the North Texas Auctions building was added along with the a chain length barbed wire fence.

The Bonham Drive-In Theatre Marquee Condition

The sign is in rough shape. Most of the neon is gone and one of the letters is missing. The announcement board was removed and the new company name was added. The Bonham Drive-In Theatre Marquee is in desperate need of restoration and preservation.

This beautiful vintage sign would look incredible all lit on this dark country Highway.

The Bonham Drive-In Theatre Marquee Location

The Bonham Drive-In Theatre marquee is located just west of Bonham, Texas off HWY 56 just before you get into town. You can’t miss it.

About The Image

This image was shot by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 as the storms were about to pass through. I then edited it in Adobe Lightroom. I then post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, bright the image, and bring out the details in the image. Then removed the dust spots and rain spots. I then used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image
