Woodland Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Woodland Drive-In was open in 1954 with a car capacity listed at 500. The Woodland advertised the brightest curved screen in Utah.

The drive-in closed in 1983 and was demolished by 1984.

Any further information on the Woodland Drive-In would be appreciated.

Owner:

ABC International Theaters

Open ~1950-~late 1980’s? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Found an ad that states:

“Largest Brightest Screen in Utah”

“Largest CinemaScope Curved Screen in the World”

120-Foot Picture With a Special Directional Lighted Aluminum Curved Screen That Gives the BrigHtest and Clearest Picture West of the Mississippi"

ALL IN THE SAME AD!

THAT AD ALSO GIVES AN ADDRESS OF:

4005 SOUTH 7th EAST

THAT’S A COMPLETLY DIFFERENT ADDRESS FROM THE ONE ABOVE IN A DIFFERENT PART OF TOWN??????

More info and photos are welcome.

Use 4021 South 700 East. This is where the drive-in’s entrance was located.

Above address is pointing to an intersection north of this…

BTW The marquee and the drive-in itself can be at 2 different addresses. There were and still are several buildings between the D/I and above address.

Finally, not everything you read is incorrect. I have been corrected on this site. You will too.

Just uploaded aerial from 1956 showing location of the DI. I just checked Goggle Earth from 1970 and it does not show the DI. Goggle Earth is sometimes wrong.

Looking at the one ad for the DI the address listed is right on: 4005 South 700 East Salt Lake City, UT 84107
