The Glenwood Springs Mall currently occupies the site. The Canyon Drive-In was both closed and demolished in the early-1980s for the above mentioned mall to be built.

The screen faced north and sat where the Checker Auto Parts currently sits on the mall lot. Ironically, the Movies In The Mall Theater (formerly the Mall 3) sits in the mall, almost exactly where the concession/projection building for the drive-in was located.

Well, Tlsloews it is not in the book so it either wasn’t built yet or had already closed.You might have to get some old newspaper ads from the Nashville paper.You had Bel-air.
Bordeaux
Colonial
Crescent
Skyway Drive-ins. in 1956. I know Nashville had more Drive-ins that that so i assume they were located in small towns nearby that the locals today,just call Nashville.
