The Fiesta Drive-In opened on May 7, 1959, screening the 1958 western “Apache Territory” with Rory Calhoun, Barbara Bates and John Dehner. The second feature was the 1957 comedy “Spook Chasers” with Huntz Hall and the Bowery Boys. The new ozoner was opened by Ed Payne who was in partnership with Barton Cook in the Moonlight Drive-In. Payne dissolved the partnership with Barton and built the Fiesta Drive-In. In 1965 he would open the Torch Drive-In. In 1970 he would buy the Atomic Drive-In in Waverley, OH. from J. Henry “Hank” Davidson (dba Associated Theatres) from Lynchburg, OH.
The Fiesta Drive-In screened its last movie at the end of the 1985 season. The drive-in was demolished and is now part farm field and one empty building. The only thing left is the moonbeam light pole. Read comments from Ed Payne’s son.
