71 Drive-In

Operated for decades at the intersection of Rolling Hills Drive and U.S. Highway 71-B in Springdale to the north of Fayetteville, Arkansas. The 71 Drive-In was opened prior to 1955 and was operated by Commonwealth Theatres Ct. out of Kansas City.

The theater was sold and demolished and converted to a large strip retail center named Fiesta Square, anchored by Walmart. The AMC chain operates the Fiesta Square 16-screen indoor theater, a somewhat run-down and neglected property, with a mix of first-run and second-run films.

More recently, Walmart left Fiesta Square for a new site a mile or so to the north. Today the strip center includes as tenants a Harps Grocery, Big Lots, Chuck E. Cheese, Hastings, Deals (a Walmart property), Cricket, Hardee’s, and several smaller businesses.

The July 4, 1960 issue of Boxoffice included a two-page spread on the 71, focusing on its playground, mainly its miniature train ride, complete with tunnel and trestles, that carried children to a miraculous lollipop tree that produced its “fruit” three times a week.
