How Many Treasure Valley Drive-Ins are Still Open?
It's almost that time of the year when the weather is warm enough for Drive in Movie Theaters can open. Yes we still have drive in movie theaters (plural) here in the Treasure Valley.
I grew up going to drive-in movies in Grangeville. Most of the movies I saw, while growing up was at the Grangeville Drive-in Movie Theater. We'd load up the car with friends and for $5 a car load we'd see movies every summer.
Drive-ins used to be all over the place, but over the past 20 years most have gone out of business due to the movie industry upgrading their equipment to digital. For most drive-ins, that was too much of a cost to continue to do business, but there are two still left here in the Treasure Valley and eleven others scattered through out the state, including my old drive-in in Grangeville.
