66 West Twin Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The 40 West Drive-In opened in 1967, and was built for and operated by Woodie & Mattie Sylvester from 1967 until 1981. They sold their theatres and the 40 West Drive-In to Danny Wolfenbarger. Later he twined the drive-in and altered the name to 66 West Twin Drive-In. Later he sold the drive-in and other theatres to a chain (not sure which one).

After some period of time of closure, it was re-opened in 1999. It remained open as a twin screen showing first run attractions until 2011. It had been sold to an oilfield service company in 2010. It was demolished in November 2011, and the site is now used for Big Rig shop, which is a trucking company.

in 2013, the original owner of the 40 West Drive-In, Woodie Sylvester, is still alive and going strong at the age of 96.
