The first Theatre Catalog drive-in list, in the 1948-49 edition, included the Alfresco Drive-In, 2 miles north of Burley, capacity 350, owner I. H. Harris of Harris Voeller Theatres, Inc.
Boxoffice reported on June 17, 1950, “BURLEY, IDA. – George Price built an addition to his Price Drive-In building here to house a frozen custard machine.”
A 1966 topo map showed a drive-in just north of the Snake River, which splits modern-day Burley. A 1992 aerial photo showed the concession building and ramps intact.
Today, the site sits just east of the Century Stadium 5 indoor theater. Hints of ramps are still visible.
