Boxoffice, June 26, 1954: “The Weekiwow Drive-In, located five miles south of Polson on Highway 93, was opened Friday (11) by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Shell, who also operate a local indoor theatre. The name Weekiwow was chosen in a contest. It means a large gathering or lodge in the Indian language. The Weekiwow features a 66x40-foot screen.”

I don’t trust Boxoffice’s spellings; the 1955-56 Theatre Catalog had it as the Wiki Wow, capacity 250.
