The West-Vue Drive-In was a single-screen outdoor theatre that stood at the northwest corner of 86th Street and Hickman Road in the Des Moines suburb of Urbandale, Iowa.

The earliest indication of it’s existence I can find is a theatre bill from June 1952. The theatre was closed around 1977 and demolished shortly thereafter.

A Perkins Restaurant and Bakery now stands approximately where the Northwest-facing screen once was.
