Super 99 Drive-In

The Super 99 Drive-In was located on Highway 99 E. in the district of Milwaukie, southeast of Portland, OR. It was opened in 1950, and was operated by Amphitheatres Inc. and Oregon Co-Op.

The screen blew down in 1951 and was rebuilt for the 1952 season. It blew down again on the Columbus Day windstorm of 1962. It was replaced and the Super 99 Drive-In continued to operate until at least 1980.

Thanks for putting this up, and thanks Hispeed54 for the complete address! I never went here but certainly knew it existed, we drove by it a few times. I remember it being closed right around 1979, just as DRESSED TO KILL was coming out in theaters.

Boxoffice, Dec. 8, 1951: “In a violent windstorm … recently, major damage was done at the Super 99 Drive-In on McLoughlin boulevard, when the huge outdoor screen was toppled. It would have to be completely rebuilt, the management said, and as a result, the theatre was closed for the remainder of the season.”

There is an ad in the photo that is dated in 1980, so it have at least to that year?
