NYozoner commented about Movie Park Drive-In on Dec 22, 2016 at 4:48 am

1953 Film Daily Yearbook (FDY) has this listed as the Movie Park Drive-In. In 1955, FDY has it listed as Parkside Drive-In, probably as an unintentional mental error, as it is again listed as Movie Park Drive-In in the 1960 FDY, 1966 FDY, and 1970 FDY. International Motion Picture Almanac has it listed as Movie Park Drive-In in its 1962, 1964, 1965, and 1969 editions.

There was no reference in any of my theatre catalogs from 1950 to 1970 to a Spot Drive-In in this town. If there were a reference from another source, it was probably a mis-classified reference to the Spot Theatre, which was a hardtop, and not a drive-in.

Please remove Spot Drive-In under the “Previous Name” heading, as I believe this to be an error.

The site of the Razorback Drive-In is clearly visible in aerial photos from 1949 & 1963. It should be easy to conclude that the Camden Drive-In was reopened by Malco and renamed the Razorback Drive-In, and that they were both at the same location.

After further research, it has been confirmed that the proper address for 71 Drive-In was actually at a different location, Jenny Lind Road at S Zero St Fort Smith, AR 72901

The address currently in the heading was for the Sky Vue Drive-In.

There was a drive-in just across the Alabama state line, on Old US-31 at Sweet Springs Rd, in Ardmore, Alabama. Ardmore is one of those cities which straddles the state line between Tennessee and Alabama. The drive-in on Old US-31 is about two miles south of the state line in Ardmore, Alabama.

1951-52 IMPA Theatre Catalog also shows the Auto Drive-In, Moscow/Pullman, 465 cars, and E. Metzgar as the owner. This is the exact same information which appears in the 1962, 1964, and 1965 IMPA Theatre Catalogs, so it appears as though this originally opened as the Auto Drive-In in 1950, and sometime before 1962 was renamed the Varsity Drive-In.

Please update this listing to – Additinnal Information – Previous Names: Auto Drive-In.

The 1962, 1964, & 1965 IMPA Theatre Catalogs all refer to a Varsity Drive-In in Washington State, under the location of Moscow Pullman Highway, and not the name of the town. This is unusual, since these catalogs normally organize their lists by town or city names, and not by roadways. Due to the proximity of the state line between Idaho and Washington, technically this should be listed under the town of Pullman, Washington, but since it was located only two miles west of Moscow, Idaho, it also served that community, if not more so.

5951 Airport Rd Pullman, WA 99163

Site is now occupied by Platt Electrical Supply, just west of the Washington State line, and only two miles west of Moscow, Idaho. It was on the corner of WA-270 and Pullman Airport Road.

What is somewhat confusing about this is that Pullman Airport Road loops around to intersect WA-270 at two points which are almost five mile apart.

Topo Maps clearly indicate the location of the drive-in at the more easterly intersection, closer to Moscow than to Pullman, but technically still in Pullman due to being on the west side of the state line between Idaho and Washington.

The drive-in also appears very clearly at this location in this aerial photo

from 1953.

According to local resident of Moscow, this was known as the Varsity Drive-In.

There was a N. Division Indoor Theatre on N. Division in Spokane. There were no other drive-ins on N. Division, other than the Auto-Vue Drive-In and the Y Drive-In.

The Meridian Drive-In was on Fairview Ave, which used to be Hwy 30 before it was moved when I-84 was built. Also, the car capacity information is identical in the theatre catalogs for both the Hwy 30 Drive-In and the Meridian Drive-In. The owners had to come up with a new name after Hwy 30 was moved sometime in the mid 1950s.

The Sky Vue Drive-In did not reopen in 2016. Its future is uncertain, as the operators are still attempting to raise funds for a digital projector. The same operators run the Motor Vue, also in Idaho Falls, which was open in 2016 running 35mm films.

Any information on a Central Drive-In near Stayton or Sublimity? It may have been open around 1950-55.
