The Center Drive-In opened in 1956. Car capacity was listed at 200. I couldn’t find a closing on this drive-in.

Found It. The drive-in sat north of the river approx. 9698 County Road 99, Bridgeport.

You can still see the general outline of the drive-in and a building sits where the projection booth/concession stand once stood.

The address listed is incorrect.

The address for this Drive-in is 399 7th St, Bridgeport, NE 69336.

In aerials from 1963, you can barely make out the ramps. This closed long ago. Now tennis courts.

Please update.

Is this it? Motion Picture Herald, Feb. 5, 1955: “Dorrance Schmidt, owner of the Trail, Bridgeport, Neb., is building a 250-car drive-in, and is opening it in early spring.”

Or is this it? Motion Picture Herald, March 12, 1955: “Vassos Brothers, now operating a filling station in Bridgeport, Neb., are building a 30-car drive-in there, for a spring opening.”
