The Autoview Drive-In was along Pearl Street in Tacoma’s West End, and opened in 1950. The highway leading to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge passed by the drive-in, and drivers could try to see what film was playing there.

It was owned by Forman Unit and managed by Homer and Bell Kiehl. There was room for 725 cars.

The drive-in closed in 1983 and was demolished in 1985, to make way for apartments.
