Sundown Drive-in

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.

The map location is incorrect. The drive-in was located (and the screens are still present) on the southeast corner of Highway 5 and 43, southeast of the location currently pegged on the map.

It’s actually Highway 5 and Highway 41 (not 43).

Opened with “Get yourself a college girl” and “Wild wild winter”. The drive-in lot(complete?) is now used by a outdoor storage facilty to store cars and buses.
