The address is: 2805 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NM 87701. That address is on the wrong side of the road. The drive-in was located underneath I-25.

As many drive-ins did in the 1950s, the Vegas filed a federal anti-monopoly lawsuit because it couldn’t get first-run movies. That was reported in the Denver Post on Nov. 23, 1958, when the drive-in was owned by Las Vegas man Gus Daskalos and Green River WY’s Steve Nitse.
