Park-Vu Drive-In

The Park-Vu Drive-In was located in Mill Creek to the south of Salt Lake City. It had in-car heaters and booked the A-class films; "Anatomy of a Murder" was showing. One show only. Strict warning for adults only. Admission was a rather large $1.00 per person.

That address is a far cry from what I had,they really made one look for a Drive-in in those days.

The Park-Vu was one of a very few (if not the only) drive-in theaters in Salt Lake City to install 70-mm equipment.
They showed the area’s only first-run presentation of “Solomon and Sheba” in Technirama-70.

The original Park-Vu Drive-In opened within the Salt Lake City city limits at 540 West 13th South on June 7, 1950 with “Little Women.“ Less than two years later, it was over for the Park-Vu as torrential rains and a flood decimated the Park-Vu. It would move south to establish a drier position.
