The Westfield Drive-In was opened on May 23, 1952 with George Reeves in the short movie “Champagne for Two” & John Payne in “Crosswinds”. This drive-in was partnered with a motel and restaurant, hence the change of name. It was closed in 1986 and was destroyed in a fire in the late-1990’s.

The drive-in was “abandoned” but not yet gone when mentioned in the 1996 book Road Trip USA.

When this drive-in was operating, could the movies be seen or heard from the motel?

Hi David,

This response is a bit late, but I can answer your question:

Through a strange set of circumstances I actually stayed at this motel in the 1970s. I can confirm that you definitely could not hear the movies from the motel.

As far as seeing the movies, you couldn’t see them either as the screen was facing in the opposite direction to the entrance and you wouldn’t have been able to see it from any of the rooms.

As far as hearing, in those days you drove up next to a speaker that you put into your car to hear the movies. So you wouldn’t be able to hear them either.
