Pullman Drive-In

A short-lived drive-in, it was built in the early-1950’s near the Pullman City Playfield. This one didn’t last long, as there were two other drive-in’s in town, and this was shut down in the late-1950’s. An old box office book showed that it had a capacity of 250 cars.

So it would have been at the south west corner of the intersection of NE Stadium Way and SE Nevada St.

Good eye. I actually did look at the aerial before posting it, and if the circle is the rotunda, the drive-in would have been on the corner of SE Nevada Street & Olympia Avenue. I have a bit of an issue with it, though.

Here are some photos I found from a WSU photo archive. There’s a bridge in these photos that doesn’t correspond with the intersection. It does show it being close to the Pullman playfield and baseball field, along with a railroad that goes along Riverview Street. http://digitalemerson.wsulibs.wsu.edu/items/show/3672 http://kaga.wsulibs.wsu.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/hutchison&CISOPTR=311&CISOBOX=1&REC=4 http://kaga.wsulibs.wsu.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/hutchison&CISOPTR=453&CISOBOX=1&REC=11

On the left of the playfield is the Main Street bridge.
