The Navarre Amphitheatre Drive-In was designed by the Minneapolis architectural firm of Liebenberg and Kaplan. It was scheduled for a spring, 1953, opening according to Boxoffice Magazine’s November 8, 1952, issue. The drive-in’s capacity was to be 575 cars.

A pencil drawing of the drive-in is among the Liebenberg and Kaplan papers collected at the Andersen Library of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

The address for this Drive-in is now 3600 Shoreline Dr, Wayzata, MN 55391.

This is no longer Navarre, although Navarre Avenue is a couple of blocks away.

Please update.
