Terrace Drive in

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Terrace Drive-In was open by 1955 when it was operated as a single screen 300-car capacity theatre by Virgil Odell. This 3 screen ozoner had its third screen added in 2007. Car capacity is listed at 450. It is open from April thru November.

Taken over by Herold Theatres in 2016, only one screen is in operation, with plans to open a second screen in 2017.

Here’s a video of the drive in. The video shows 3701 to 4011. Either one maps ya right to it.

The information in this header is not correct. I believe—though I’m not certain—that this drive-in was built with three screens, back in the ‘70s. But ever since I started attending in the mid-'90s, and probably long before that, only one of the screens has been in use, and the other two lots sit there vacant. I haven’t been up to Idaho yet this season but I don’t have any reason to believe they’ve started using either of the two idle screens again. It’s open weekends only, by the way, and shows second-run double features, just like the other area drive-in, the better known Parma Motor-Vu.

According to their web site they have made the conversion to digital projection.

The Terrace Drive-In debuted in the 1950’s. There was a fire in the 1980’s that did sginificant damage. It was closed for a while and sat in limbo. A woman reopened it but they are only using 1 screen.

This drive-in only has one screen in operation, Chris Willman is correct. I believe I’ve made 2 stops out here, in 2005 and again in ‘05.
There is nothing wrong with this drive-in, its a pretty good operation and in order. I just feel that the Parma Motor-Vu, about 20 minutes west is more charming and I tend to go there instead.

As of the 2016 season the management of the Terrace Drive In is now operated by Herold Theatres: http://www.heroldtheatres.net/.

One screen is in operation, but they plan to open a second screen in 2017.
