This drive-in opened in 1954. The original owner was Walt Whitaker, a sheep rancher. The theater operated under various partnerships until its closing in 1978. Bob Erickson re-opened the drive-in in 1980 and operated it for another eight years, until it closed for good. The theater was demolished in September 2004.
