The Grove Drive-In Wasn’t Even Opened In 1949 Nor Wasn’t Even Known As The 71 Drive-In.

The 71 Drive-In Kennerado’s Talking About Is The 71 In Fayetteville, Which Has Its Own CinemaTreasures Page.

The Grove Drive-In Is The Only Name Throughout Its History And It Opened Way Later Than That.

Construction Began In 1962, And The Grove Drive-In Opened Its Gates On June 7, 1963 With A Double Repackaging Feature: The 1958 Andy Griffith Film “No Time For Sergeants” And The 1961 Debbie Reynolds Film “The Second Time Around”, With No Selected Short Subjects.

Yeah I Made Mistakes Sometimes… Whoops!

After closing in the mid-1980s, the screen remains standing until 2014. The Grove Drive-In is now listed as demolished.

The Grove held its Grand Opening on June 7, 1963 and ran a rare ad in Fayetteville’s Northwest Arkansas Times to mark the occasion.
