No, it opened in 1980 and closed at some point later on. I know that not many drive-ins opened in the 70s and 80s, but that’s what the source says.

I guess it depends on your interpretation. Timelines generally start at the beginning and go to the end. If it says Timeline – 1980-closed, I am assuming that’s a chronological progression. I could be wrong, but it’s hard to tell.

The Broadview drive in was built in the 1950’s. We owned the drive in in the neighboring town and we purchased all the speakers and some of the other equipment when it closed. We bought that equipment in 1988. It was a nice drive in and had a big snack bar with knotty pine panneling. The screen and buildings stood well into the 80’s but were demolished by the early 90’s.

The Broad-view Drive-In in Morganfield, KY was open in the 70’s for sure. I drove there as a kid in ‘74. It was about the only thing to do on the weekend. I know that it was open in the 60’s too, but don’t know an opening date.
