Is This the Final Summer at the Twin Falls Drive-In Theaters?

Motor-Vu Drive-In. Interstate Amusement/Facebook

In a post on Facebook, Interstate Amusement announced that this could be the last summer for the drive-in movies in Twin Falls.

No more summer movies at the drive-in?

Both drive-in theaters use 35mm film projection systems right now, and those are becoming harder and harder to secure movies for since the industry has primarily switched to digital projection. Upgrading both drive-in theaters could cost upwards of $100,000.

The Motor-Vu opened 66 years ago in 1947, and was the first drive-in to open in Idaho. It’s a piece of American history, and the Motor-Vu and Grand-Vu are two of the last remaining drive-in theaters in the country.

Interstate Amusement is committed to keeping the drive-in theaters open though. They want to continue to keep this landmark open and serving the Magic Valley, and I truly hope they do so. My family loves going to the drive-in ever summer. It’s a tradition for us.

How do we save our drive-in theaters? Go see a show and have a great time! Support our local drive-in theaters and keep them around for the next generation.
