Found It!

The address is 3405 Broadway Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM 87105.

Today, the property is occupied by All Jeep Parts & Sales with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

This clipping at Newspapers.com says that:

  • Its grand opening was March 22, 1957
  • when it was known as the Tri-C Drive-In
  • at the address of 3251 Broadway SE
  • and according to the clipper, it was later known as the Route 25 and the San Jose.

Although that newspaper clipping said what it said, Kenmore is right. At the modern-day address of 3251 Broadway SE, Historic Aerials doesn’t show anything that looks like a drive-in, but a few blocks south, there it is. It was probably another victim of Albuquerque’s street renumbering, so Kenmore’s address is perfect.

I was reminded of this seeing a random June 1965 newspaper ad showing the Route 25 (by that point) showing all Spanish-language movies.
