And they said the drive-in theater was dead. For a cool $3.99 million, however, any film buff (or rockabilly enthusiast) can own Doc’s Drive-In, a 7.9-acre property in Buda. Located at 1540 Satterwhite Rd, Buda, TX 78610, the property includes, per the listing, “three fully furnished movie-themed casitas, as well as a subterranean members-only speakeasy style private club.”

The sale includes everything Doc’s has to offer, including the commercial kitchen and bar, short term rental income from the casitas, and, crucially — if the buyer is so inclined — “all proprietary elements and income of business to be disclosed to inquiring buyers.” That means that anyone who purchases Doc’s Drive In can keep the name and operate, and potentially expand on, the existing business.

A spokesperson for Douglas Elliman Real Estate tells MySA that the sellers moved to San Marcos in 2021 and welcomed a baby recently, and that they are selling Doc’s to spend more time as a family. The drive-in, opened by Chris and Sarah Denny in 2018, was created as both a retro look into the past, with its old-timey signage, on-site speakeasy and, well, just its mere existence as a drive-in theater in the 21st century. But the addition of the casitas — and a private beach — added a modern touch, as did its regular drag shows. The owners hope that the spirit of Doc’s Drive-In will live on, but realize that the site can be transformed into a variety of new businesses.

“While they would love for the legacy of the business to continue with the next owner, the property itself is so special and versatile that the new owners will be able to adapt the space to make it their own,” the Douglas Elliman spokesperson said.
