One of four drive-in theaters in Oregon that are active, the La Grande Drive-In was opened May 10, 1951 with Lex Barker in “Tarzan’s Challenge”. It was operated by Jones Entertainment and Western Amusements.

All the currently operating drive-ins are operated by those who run the Granada 3 Theater, and are open during the summer (or sometimes late-spring).

The La Grande Drive-In has mad the conversion to digital projection. Their website has the drive-in at the bottom of the webpage. It is closed for the season.

The 1952 Theatre Catalog already listed the LaGrande, capacity 350, exec: W.J. Shell. (The 1949-50 edition doesn’t list it.)

The drive-in’s web site said it was purchased by its current owners in 1953, suggesting it was built earlier.
