I grew up on Acacia Drive next to the Motor Vu. As kids, we’d sit on the corner at night and watch the movies. The sound was loud enough we could hear what was going on.

Boxoffice, Dec. 20, 1976: “CHEYENNE, WYO. – Jim Rowles, manager of the Motor-Vu, and the Starlite’s Wayne Gow this fall kept patrons happy and boosted profits with a continuous barrage of promotions and tie-ins. Frequently used was "Lucky Tag Night,” which offered patrons a pass if the license number posted at the refreshment center matched their car tag. Another popular feature at the Motor-Vu was “Car Cram Night,” when all moviegoers in each vehicle were admitted for a flat price of $4."
