Greenacres Drive-In

The Western Drive-In Theatres Circuit began work on the proposed Western Drive-In in Lethbridge in 1949. However, the project stalled and the 300- car spot, $100,000 facility launched as the GreenAcres Drive-In on April 28, 1950 with the film, “The Kid From Texas” starring Audie Murphy.

The Southern Alberta ozoner was also marketed as the Green Acres Drive-In and closed under the name, the Greenacres Drive-In. The Greenacres Drive-In closed with Robert Redford in “Legal Eagles” and Alan Alda in “Sweet Liberty” on October 6, 1986. Its tower signage appears to have been saved.

I imagine this drive-in was the place to be?

Provided that you don’t get allergic smelling hay.

The site is now a hotel(Comfort Inns) and a pub and restuarant(Legends). There may still be grass left on the rest of the site(Green Acres, lol!!)!!?
