100 Flite Acres Road
The Houston Chronicle wants you to “Think of it as a drive-in without cars…But unlike a drive-in, this theater brings people together rather than separating them.” This outdoor theatre is quite literally in a corral that’s packed with history dating back to the 1940s. Watching a movie at the Corral is the perfect way to unwind from a busy day in Wimberley.
