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”.

Goofy rename (no offense, Scott!).

Most of the fields have been resealed in 2013.

I was also in LV…and went here…in April of last year and saw the potholes & debris first hand.

Chris: I was in LV in April of last year and looked over fence during daytime. It needs a overhaul

Did they repave the fields? Too much debris & potholes in it’s current config.

The sixth screen at this location as been rebuilt and is currently up and running. Should now be the Las Vegas 6 Drive-In.

Digital projection to be installed before the end of April 2013.

There is also a duplicate listing of this as the West Wind Drive-In (which it is operated by).

This is my wife’s other favorite theater. See my post at West Winds. My brain could be merging the two theaters together, too.

Syufy Enterprises owns West Wind. Just saying. :)

I’m glad this location is still open despite the fact that I don’t visit as much as I should. I heard rumors that Syufy wanted to tear it down and sell the land, like they do with every other theater they own, but the City of Las Vegas wouldn’t let them as its a (local) landmark.

I took a few dates here during my high school years because I’m classy like that alongside having a summer where my friends and I would do the double features here every Tuesday for four dollars.

They claimed to have upgraded their projection systems recently, but when I went a few months ago, for a double feature of Machete and Piranha, it still looked the same.

This drive-in was designed by Vincent G. Raney, architect of virtually all of the Syufy-Century theaters from the 1960s through the 1980s. Start of construction was announced in the July 5, 1965, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. The theater was to have space for 1200 cars, and the largest screen in Nevada.

Was mentioned in the documentary “Drive-In Movie Memories” in 2001.

We were out there last night. Funny to see all the films showing on the big screens. We have very few operating drive-ins left in SoCal. Here is another view of the marquee:

Actually,“Phantasm” played at the Desert 5 drive in. I still have the ticket stub,which Angus Scrimm(The Tall Man)autographed for me at a sci-fi a few years ago.

I DID see “Star Wars” here though.

Went to this passion pit a few times in my senior year. Saw Phantasm there. Look in the rear view mirror, and I could watch Inframan! What a gonzo time!

This location is now operated by West Wind Drive-Ins.

It was originally a single screen that opened 2/7/1966 and was later expanded into six screens. A storm blew down most of the main screen, which has been closed for some time now.

The location operates year round with 5-screens.
