The same people own the drive-in on the outskirts of town. One side of the Blue Fox’s marquee advertises what’s playing there at the indoor theater, and the other side of the summer advertises what’s out at the drive-in (at least in the summer). There is no marquee of any sort on the drive-in property. So technically, the drive-in’s marquee is about two miles off-site. (Sorry—I’m probably the only one who finds that funny.)

I was in Cancun, Mexico last summer, and the only American TV channels available were from network affiliates in Idaho. I spent a week in the Gulf of Mexico catching up on news, weather and sports from Pocatello and the greater Boise area.

I have been out to the Auto-Vue drive-in about 5 times in the last 10 years. But never had a chance to see inside of the Blue Fox until my last trip thru Grangeville. It is a very well preserved small town theater, with alot of vintage touches throughout the lobby and auditorium.
