I was just able to visit this Drive-In yesterday. The screen, the lot and the outer fence is all still there. The snack bar / projection building looks to have collapsed. Photos from my 7-21-2012 visit can be seen here.

I worked at both the Lee Theater and Parkview Drive In summer of 67. The drive in was classic.

richardnecochea…the best way is to go to the local library and start going through the copies of the local newspaper and look at the movie ads.

I saw the original Halloween movie (with Jamie Lee Curtis) at this theater in 1978. I believe it closed not too long after that. The screen and marquee are still standing.

No Speaker posts are all gone. Snack bar and ticket booth are gone too. Foundation for ticket booth is still there though. Screen and outer fencing is all that is left.

This screen is slated to be moved to the Auto Vue Drive In in Colville, which is the only remaining operational drive-in in eastern Washington.
