Movie Park Drive-In

Opened by 1953, the Movie Park Drive-In. It operated seasonally and used conventional drive-in speakers. It had a 200 car capacity and closed in the late-1980’s.

This is closed, isn’t it? I don’t see any indication that they ever re-opened.

There was also a walk-in Spot Theatre in Siloam Springs. It was scheduled to open on November 9, 1946, according to the November 2 issue of Boxoffice Magazine that year.

1953 Film Daily Yearbook (FDY) has this listed as the Movie Park Drive-In. In 1955, FDY has it listed as Parkside Drive-In, probably as an unintentional mental error, as it is again listed as Movie Park Drive-In in the 1960 FDY, 1966 FDY, and 1970 FDY. International Motion Picture Almanac has it listed as Movie Park Drive-In in its 1962, 1964, 1965, and 1969 editions.

There was no reference in any of my theatre catalogs from 1950 to 1970 to a Spot Drive-In in this town. If there were a reference from another source, it was probably a mis-classified reference to the Spot Theatre, which was a hardtop, and not a drive-in.

Please remove Spot Drive-In under the “Previous Name” heading, as I believe this to be an error.

Just added more photos of original speakers and marquee letters. Very unique speakers. Name of theatre was originally something else. I will post here when I remember what it was.
