Hmm… Since The 112 Opened In 1980, This Can Be A Rare Result.

According to a great retrospective by NWA Alive with the 112 owners (you can find the video on Facebook), the 112 opened in 1980.

I’m Afraid That The 112 I Believe Didn’t Open Until The 1970s. It Didn’t Appear In Either The 1961, 1968, Or 1971 Newspaper Listings…

Boy, all those restrictions sound like right here in Olympia, Washington. We must have gotten our city council from you guys.

Here we go!!!

The plans called for a twin. But it was never finished. I almost had the owners ready to finish it, but unfortunately, the city of Fayetteville added so many restrictions to getting a permit. That the cost became way too much.

The ramps were already built. We only needed projection equipment and a screen. The Roads were there as well, but the City of Fayetteville wanted us to Build a lake to retain water, to dig out the culverts under 112, that they just had the car lot replace with a double culvert and for us to install 1 very large culvert. We were to put a sidewalk from Nelms to the Glass company, to put in an irrigation system and water line and plant trees all across the HWY 112 frontage, So that kind of killed it as ever being possible.

I emailed them….hopefully we will have an answer. I don’t have history on the drive-in, maybe it opened has a twin?

Yeh what’s the deal with the field layout? Looks like a twin to me.

In looking at an aerial it used to a twin at one time.

I used to work at the 112 back when I live in Fayetteville….worked a couple of summers back in the early 90’s. Worked the box, the concession stand and quite a bit of security…..was a good parttime job to supplement income and all the free passes to the local theatres i could want.

There was also a 71 Drive-In operating in the 1960s in Fayetteville. I assume would have been off Highway 71?
