COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA — Just saw on the news today that the big screen of the Council Bluffs Drive-In is coming down and the property will be a barren lot soon. They say that another will be reconstructed in 2008 but time will tell.

The theatre operated for over fifty years. The company who bought the land is using it for “future economic development of a specific use and function.” Luckily, I got to see a movie there last summer with my best friend…I will miss the theatre very much!

That’s really too bad. My dad is from the Council Bluffs area (Lewis Township) and I’ve definitely seen that theater. Drive-ins are shutting down all of the time.

Drive-in’s keep going down because people will not patronize them. Do your part.
