Most of the fields have been resealed in 2013.

It hasn’t been renamed officially… it’s still the Las Vegas drive-in — dunno who insisted it become the All Digital Drive-In… it would be the equivalent of naming every Cinemark “Best Seat in Town Cinemas”.

The 1984 Motion Picture Almanac lists it with four screens, suggesting an intermediate stage between one screen and six.

I think this might be the drive-in that the owners(names unknown?) wanted to close down(date unknown?), but the council would not left them!?

West Wind drive-ins are still in the Syufy family and have been since 1940. Syufy changed its name to Century Cinemas and then later sold their indoor theaters, so they had to change their name to something else. Thus, West Wind. Some of their former drive-ins are now swap meets which they still run, such as the Coliseum Drive-In in Oakland.
