The Motor Vu Twin Drive-In was the only drive-in theater in Imperial County. It opened nightly at 7 pm, with movies starting at dusk. It was a popular place, with modern movies as well as some classics. This twin screen opened as a single screen in the mid-1940’s and later a second screen was added. Car capacity is listed at 550.

The Motor Vu Twin Drive-In was closed on April 13, 2013.

The Motor Vu Twin might have been the last drive-in operating in Imperial County, but it was not the only one the county ever had. There was also the Family Motor Vu Drive-In at Brawley, only a few miles north of Imperial.
