Drive-In 54 commented about Sunset Drive-In on Dec 23, 2013 at 8:26 am

Here is what I have found: In looking at my information there was an only two drive-in theatres in Fort Collins. There is the Sunset and the Holiday (which is open and listed on CT). No Foothills Drive-In is listed. In looking at TOPO maps it does not show a drive-in theatre at the park location. But it shows one beside it. In looking at the Rivest theatre site he does have an aerial picture on the drive-in that I have the TOPO map of. Rivest has the Sunset listed at 1800 Matthews St as the address. I don’t think that is the correct address. You have to remember over the years that some addresses have changed. This is my thinking. CC44 do you live in the area? It would be a good research project at the local library.

Drive-In 54 commented about South #1 Drive-In on Dec 3, 2013 at 10:31 am

I emailed the library and here is the answer:

“I believe we have found a little more information on the Car-Ral Drive-In Theatre. According to an advertisement from the Raleigh News & Observer from August 1st, 1948, the location of the theatre was "US No. 1 South Opposite WPTF Towers”, which are near East Chatham Street in Cary today, just south of what is now NC 54 (if my geography is correct, which is often a shaky proposition) . Another article from the News & Observer of May 18, 1952 has a picture of the damage done by heavy winds ,forcing the drive-in to close temporarily. An ad from the October 15, 1953 News and Observer shows the theatre having reopened as “South #1 Drive-In Theatre”. The fact that the new name is a reflection of the location of the Car-Ral’s location leads me to believe that they were the same theater."

In looking aerial from 1964 (bad picture and TOPO maps show nothing)there is something showing. Since it was a small DI maybe that is it??

The Sundance lost it’s main screen tower during a tornado on November 17, 2013. It is the original screen tower that was put in 1949. Great Eastern Theatres is planning to replace it.
