Varsity Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One source says this drive-in was simply a drive-in (i.e. nameless) while another says it was called Varsity Drive-In. Nonetheless, this drive-in was near the Washington State/Idaho border at the intersection between WA State Route 270 and Pullman Airport Road. It closed as the Varsity Drive-In in 1975.

The 1953 edition of the Yearbook Of Motion Pictures shows that there was an “Auto Drive-In” in Moscow, Idaho, but no other sources online refer to it. Since the Varsity Drive-In was considered a ‘borderline’ drive-in, it is possible that it is one and the same. The yearbook doesn’t indicate if Auto was the name of the drive-in, or that it’s simply a drive-in theater for ‘autos’.

One source says the Varsity Drive-In was built in 1961, although it may have existed as early as 1951 if the Auto Drive-In in Moscow refers to the one across the border in Pullman.
