Opened as the Timpanogos Cinemotor Drive-In on August 25, 1950 with Errol Flynn in “Montana” & Lilly Palmer in “My Friend Tisa”. Car capacity was listed at 500. It was operated by V.A. Gilhool. By 1964 it was renamed the Timp Drive-In.

The drive-in closed in 1981 and was demolished in June 1993 for housing units.

Named for Mount Timpanogos which got it’s name from the Timpanogots Ute Tribe.

From 1953 to at least ~1967? had the name Timpanogos Cinemotor Drive-In.

From ~1969? it was called the Timp Drive-In.

In 1993 the Ticket Booth and Projection/Concession Building were still standing.

More info and photos are always welcome.

Proximity to Mount Timpanogos, often referred to as Timp.
