Motor Vu Drive-In

The Stardust Drive-In was the first drive-in erected in Las Vegas and had a 525 car capacity. Built by the De Anza Co. of Los Angeles, it was situated behind the Stardust Hotel on Industrial Road. By 1955 it had been renamed Motor Vu Drive-In, and was listed with a capacity for 566 cars. It was operated by Howard Cahoon and E.J. Johnson.

A Budget Suites is now located on the former site of the Stardust.
