Circus Drive-In

Opened in the late-1960’s by James Bonholzer, who owned a number of theaters and drive-in’s throughout the Pacific Northwest.

The Circus Drive-In would close in 1985. While not a drive-in anymore, the screen and concession stand are still there, but now serves as a scrap yard for buses, RV’s, and campers. Technically it’s not demolished, but I don’t think the current owners plan to move in the near future.

I driven past this drive-in on the way to the Blue Fox on Whidbey Island. I’ve only only stopped a few times though, and was ready for another look. It appears the Circus is no longer an ‘active’ storage yard. Most of the boats were in the front part of the field, which is mostly cleared out now. Most of the ones in the back rows looked to be in bad shape, maybe abandoned. The front & backs gates are locked up, but there are some fence panels that have fallen down, granting access, if you’re brave enough.

Does anybody know who the current owners are?

The theater was operated by Jim Bonholzer, not Honholzer as noted in the overview. There are still members of the Bonholzer family residing in the area. Perhaps you could try to contact one of them.
