The Dec. 7, 1957 issue of Boxoffice ran a full-page spread, with photos, on the new Valli and the Veseth family that built it. “According to Carl Veseth, the drive-in has proven a very good venture, drawing people they have never seen in (their local) indoor house.”

Boxoffice, Jun 13, 1977: “Mrs. Irene Veseth, Malta, Mont., has announced the sale of the Villa Theatre and Villa Drive-In of Malta to her brother R. C. Pancake. Mrs. Veseth has been associated in the operation of the Malta theaters for 49 years. Veseth Theatres was originated in 1922 by Mrs. Veseth’s husband Carl, who died in 1975.”

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.
