| Street View

The Riverview Drive-In was open in the early-1960’s with a car capacity listed at 300. Initially it was operated by United Theatres followed by Rowley United in 1969 and finally United Artists in 1975 until it closed in the late-1980’s. There is a Wal Mart where the drive-In once stood.

Any additional information on the Riverview Drive-In would be appreciated.

Please update address to:

Arkansas 9 near Sandtown Rd
Morrilton, AR 72110

The drive-in was not where the Walmart is now. The drive-in was on Arkansas 9, next to the river, hence the name Riverview Drive-In. Topo maps from 1962, 1973, and 1982 verify the location of the drive-in. The Walmart site is 2.3 miles north of the river.

Further exploration of the Walmart site through aerial photos and topo maps show no evidence that a drive-in was at that location.
