Gulf States Theatres was a movie theater chain that operated several theaters in the Pensacola area, including the Twin Air Drive-In and Showtown USA.

Like other theater circuits, Gulf States would organize roadshows featuring actors to promote the theaters where their movies were playing. In one such promotion, Roy Rogers was sent to Pensacola in 1939 for an extended engagement.[1]
