I worked in the theaters in Sioux Falls starting in 1965, I never heard of a Soo-Del Drive in or any Drive in on Highway 77 in the Sioux Falls area. I did work (1965-68) at the East Park Drive In which was owned by Drive-in Theaters Inc. (H.E. Hanson, D. Nalgren, H. Boyd.) and operated by Welworth Theaters, which later became MidContinent Theaters. The theater was located on E Hwy 38 on land which is now occupied by a K-mart and had a capacity of 350 cars. it did open in 1947. The late Larry Hanson who went on to become an executive with Essaness (Excellence) Theaters was manager of the East Park in 1968-69
