The Sundown Drive-in Theatre opened in 1965 on a 10 acre parcel of land.

In 1996, during a summer showing of the blockbuster movie “Twister”, an actual tornado touched down, destroying both screens and damaging the concessions building.

In August 2007, the owner announced impending sale. However, as of July 2009, the Sundown Drive-In appeared to still be operational. It remained Saskatoon’s only drive-in, and was closed by 2014.

Although the screens are still up, as of summer 2014 it’s being used as a parking lot for school buses.

I just checked the location again (also visible on Street View) and it’s now Sundown Storage Solutions. Better change it’s status to Closed.
