Go West Drive-In

This was Missoula’s one and only claim to cool, but now it’s gone. The Mt. Vu Motor-In was opened August 18, 1948 with Maureen O'Hara in “Homestretch”. It had a capacity of 400 cars and was operated by B.J. Barrett. It was closed in 1966.

It was reopened as the Go West Drive-In on May 5, 1967 with Elvis Presley in “Frankie and Johnny” & Frankie Avalon in “Fireball 500”. It had a capacity of 700 cars.

I am trying to find a picture of this theater, at least the concession part of it. Any ideas how or where I might look?
