Now that his neon-lit boots, hat and rifle are in tiptop shape, the
iconic cowboy is ready to welcome moviegoers to the Winchester Drive-In
Theatre throughout another busy summer season. The 35-foot-tall sign, in place since the drive-in opened in 1968,
received its annual maintenance on Thursday. Tyler Signs repaired the
cowboy’s neon, bulbs, ballasts and transformers. Owner Lindy Shanbour said the sign is an icon and visitors love taking
photos of it. “I’m going to maintain it the way it’s supposed to be
maintained. It’s been there a long time,” he said
