Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Sanguinet launched Alamogordo’s first drive-in, the $50,000 Starlite Outdoor Theatre on December 9, 1949. The Starlite was located on Highway 70 two miles southwest of the city. In 1952, Sanguinet would begin building the Yucca Drive-In north of the city. Later that season in August, Sanguinet sold the Starlite.

A closer address is 647 Hwy 70 W, Alamogordo, NM. The drive-in sat on the south side of the road.

Today, the property is empty, but you can easily see the ramps.
