Everett’s Puget Park Drive-In shuttered

EVERETT, WA — When Everett’s Puget Park Drive-In closed for the season in September 2009, patrons had no idea that the triple bill “9,” “The Proposal” and “District 9” would be the final films to flicker on the 50'x 100' screen.

Owner Sterling Realty Organization has made an agreement with Swedish Health Services of Seattle to open a $30 million stand-alone emergency room on the drive-in property.

The three-story building is expected to be constructed near the spot where the theater’s red-and-blue snack bar now sits. Construction could begin as early as next month.

The drive-in was a throwback, and for many customers that was part of its charm.

More can be read in the Daily Herald.

This is horrible news. They just put all that money into fixing up the theater too.

Back in the early 70s I was the I.A.’s relief projectionist at that theatre. And yes, it’s sad to see it go. But Sterling apparently was more interested in the money than continuing in the theatre business. Sterling (as Sterling Theatres) used to own most of the theatres in the Seattle area.

I hope somebody can rescue some old SRO policy trailers and post them on YouTube. That would bring back some childhood memories!
