Round-Up Drive-In

The Round-Up Drive-In was opened on November 4, 1955 by local businessman, Malcolm White. Mr. White originally opened Scottsdale’s first movie theatre, the Tee-Bar-Tee Theatre in 1948, which became the Kiva Theatre in 1955.

According to the Scottsdale Progress, the Round-Up had a 700-car capacity, which could be expanded to 1,000 if needed. The opening double bill was Martin and Lewis in “You’re Never Too Young” and John Payne in “Santa Fe Passage.”

The Round-Up Drive-In, whose landmark was a 30-foot cowboy holding a lasso, closed in 1985.
