Fort Union Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Fort Union Drive-In is one of only a couple of drive-ins remaining in operation in New Mexico. In the late-1960s, there were over 45 in the state.

Opened in the 1950’s, this single-screen outdoor theater has parking for 350 cars. It operates on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May through September.

Looks like they spent a lot of money on their marquee.

Could this Drive-in have been called the VEGAS DRIVE-in. Drive-in in that town in the 50’s,that parked 350 cars,just wonderning.

Google maps is WAY off on this location. You can find the drive-in by using the address of 2878 7th Street, Las Vegas, NM 87701

I’m not claiming that this is the correct address, just that Google Maps finds the drive-in at that location.

All above roads lead to downtown! To map correctly, approx. address is New Mexico 518 & Pino Rd.
