Twilight Drive-In

The 300-car Motor-Vu Drive-In, built on old U.S. 30, was first listed in the Film Daily Yearbook of 1954-55. It was listed in the International Motion Picture Almanac through 1988, although is September 1979 it was renamed Twilight Drive-In. An S. Dewsnup of the downtown Canyon/Gaslight Theatre was listed in the Almanac as the operator.

In 2012 the screen was still up and an RV dealership occupied the site.
