Exactly. Omaha is the home of Union Pacific Railroad, ½ of the team to build it. Also, this section of West Dodge Road was originally was part of the Old Lincoln Highway, one of the earliest transcontinental highways.

Openeed with a colour cartoon(not named), and “Showboat” and “Father makes good”. Closed in 1985. Is the name Golden Spike have anything to do with the Transcontinental train line?

Loved this drive-in, saw loads of horror movies back in 1979-1980 here. Dawn of the dead being the most memorable :)

This drive in was opened in 1955. It closed in 1985. It had one screen and it was located at 114 & West Dodge Road.It was the farthest west the cars cruising would go. People would hang out at the Burger King across the street, and we would walk through the drive-thru between pictures. One time they wouldn’t serve us; they said it a DRIVE-thru. We just told them we lost the car.

The location is now home to Miracle Hills Shopping Center, an outdoor mall.
