A Facebook user named Sarah mentions having seen “Roger Rabbit” at the Rio Theatre in 1988, so it was still open at least that late. I’ve found Myrtle Creek mentioned in Boxoffice only twice, both times in items from 1954 dealing with the Tri-City Drive-In, then operating south of the town.

Looks like it was closed in the 1986 photos if that is when they were taken,maybe they reopened for a while.
