Randy…Did the owner say anything about why it is still standing after 20 years? Maybe reopen?

hispeed54… Can’t remember right off but it seems like it was where the drive in would need more than he could afford.?? & if I remember correctly, he was an older man & just didn’t have the interest in him anymore.?? (Guessing from what I remember – Remember this was almost 5 yrs ago I took the shots). I would think that the snack bar would either have to be totally renovated or demolish it & start over.. The screen was still in good shape as you can see in the photo(s).. Just sum paint mainly needed. TO bad someone couldn’t get it going again. It was kind of out in the country if I remember right…..

Architected by the drive-in specialists, the Utah firm of Cartright & Wilson, one report has September 18, 1948 as the grand opening date.
