Starlite Drive-In

The Sundown Drive-In was opened in 1953 on a 20 acres lot. One of its most interesting features was the long 525 feet throw from the projection booth, with a narrow projection angle of only 70 degrees. The all-steel screen was 60 feet wide and 40 feet high. The Sundown Drive-In was operated by A.D. Wetzstein and was designed by the architectural firm Associated Design Inc.

Later renamed Starlite Drive-In, it was closed in 1978 and demolished in the early-1980’s.

Were the Starlite and the Sundown drive-in’s one in the same? They are both listed at the same address. From 1961 on the only drive-in listed for Mandan was the Sundown Drive-In.
