Valli Drive-In

Carl Veseth and his wife launched the Valli Drive-In on June 8, 1957 in Malta. The Veseths also had opened the Villa Theatre in town on June 30, 1955. The new drive-in was managed by their son, Bill. The name of the theatre was selected by a contest entry by Hurley Williams, Jr. of Malta.

The 280-space Valli Drive-In cost a total of $40,000 to build and was constructed by the Ballantyne Company and screen tower by William Veseth. It was still operating into the 1970’s.

Very little of the drive-in remains. Just some hints at the outline and ramps along with the foundation for the projection booth/concession stand.
