Was the drive-in triangle shaped?

Found It!

The drive-in was located at 2694 Inwood Ave, Rockwell City, IA. It sat on the NE corner at the intersection of Inwood Avenue and 270th Street about three miles west of Rockwell City.

It may have called itself the “Triangle Drive-In” because it advertised the location as being “West of Rockwell City, East of Sac City, and North of Lake City”.

Today, a business sits on the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

Nice find! If you drop down to Google Street view on 270th street, there is a strangely shaped sign, triangle, that may have been the marquee. It is VERY old and there really would be no other reason for it. You can’t miss it, it’s right behind the Iowa State Trooper that is clocking speeders!
