The Alva Drive-In was opened June 14, 1950 and was operated by W.F. Deaton. It had a capacity of 400 cars. It was closed in August 1970.

The owner built the Stadium Drive-In just to the southwest of the Alva Drive-In, and that opened in July 1971 and has its own page on Cinema Treasures.

Mike Rogers, Just wanted to let you know, they were NOT the same theatre. The AlVA drive in was operated from 14 Jun 50 until Aug of 70, and the Stadium was built SW of the ALVA, due to the land lease expiring and the owner wanting to build a trailer park. The STADIUM was opened 30 July 71.

I can show you an aerial with both theatres present…
