The Sunset Drive-In was located NE of Miles City on the north side of 94 Business Highway.

It opened in July 1949 with Cornel Wilde in “The Homestretch”. It was operated by Jack Holmes. It was still in operation in the early-1980’s. However, at some later point the drive-in was closed and demolished.

Today, a mini-storage business is on the property with no trace of the old drive-in left save for the remnants of the old entrance road which wraps around the north side of the property.
