The first drive-in in the Santa Fe area was on the Taos highway 6½ miles north of town, just outside Tesuque. It was opened on June 9, 1950 with John Wayne in “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. It was operated by Salmon & Greer and had cost $100,000 to construct.
The Pueblo Drive-In had a 50-foot screen, in-car speakers, and a concessions bar. By 1952 it was operated by Gibraltar Enterprises.
Its owners, Greer Enterprises, built a replacement, also called the Pueblo Drive-In, on Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe in May 1958 (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
Only faint echos of the ramps remain today.
