In l946, Associated Amusements Inc. built the first drive in the Pacific Northwest as well in the state of Idaho. The land and the plans for the drive-in were drawn up in 1946, but metal was still scare from the war and construction did not get under way until 1947. The drive in originally could hold 600 cars, but later construction cut the count to 400. The Motor-Vu Drive-In was first opened in August 1947. Interstate Amusement is a family owned and operated company in Twin Falls. Today, the drive-in land is worth more than as a business, and Interstate Amusement feels that it not only owns the towns pieces of history but the community itself. Unless we can find a way to put in digital projection, the light will flicker out for good on September 1, 2013. You can help by voting in Honda’s Project Drive-In! If the Motor-Vu Drive-In gets enough votes, Honda will donate a digital projector and keep the Motor-Vu open!
