it might not reopen because i have found a website that has pictures of a crane standing next to the outer fence of the drive-in which was demolished so although it isn’t confirmed i think it’s a safe bet that in the near future it will be demolished.

that would be sad because in 2016 the grand vu drive-in in twin falls was demolished!

it was because people kept vandalizing the place! such a shame no drive-in theater etiquette.

here is a list of drive-in theater etitiqute from a word document i made in word please email me if you think of a rule i should add

Daniel’s modern guide to drive-in theater etiquette. !. Always drive 10 mph hours with the headlights on in theater area. 2. Once you park turn off your headlights when parked in the theater area. 3. If the drive-in you visit has speaker poles remove the rca speaker from the stand and put it on your car window and then put the speaker back on the stand so you don’t dent you’re car or break the speaker. If the drive-in theater you go to doesn’t have rca speakers skip this step. 4. If you visit a drive-in with multiple screens do not drive from one theater to the next unless you’ve paid for the other film. If you drive from one theater to the next be careful. 5. Do not sneak people in the trunk. It is illegal and rude. 6. Always check the marquee to see what’s playing before you drive to pay for the film. 7. Always visit the refreshment center. 8. Do not use more than one parking space to park your car. 9. Do not make love in your car. 10. Always have a battery charger in case your car battery dies. 11. Always have a fun memorable experience at the drive-in

also a story from the hanford sentenial about the closure of the drive-in.

right next to the drive-in they built a wal-mart they didn’t build the wal-mart on the actual drive-in because the drive-in gods really like this particular drive-in for some reason.
