Romantic Motor Vu Drive-In

The Sunset Drive-In opened in 1954 by Shumour Theatres with a car capacity listed at 289. Mr. Stan Dewsnup bought the theatre in the 1960’s and it closed in 1976.

It reopened in 1980 as the Motor Vu Drive-In and then in 2007 the property was sold. In 2007 the drive-in burned down and the gravel pit company that owned the property simply expanded their facilities.

A couple of photos of the screen tower can be found at the following website:

Despite its simplistic architecture, its rough and rustic appearance is amazing! It’s a shame that its no longer standing.

When this drive-in closed it was known as the Romantic Motor Vu Drive-In.

One of the relatively few demolished drive-ins where the only thing remaining is the screen itself.

Is it known how the fire started?
