Silver Spur Drive-In

What perfect name for an Arizona drive-in theatre. The Silver Spur Drive-In held 800 cars. In the 1950’s, there were two drive-ins in Yuma, the Silver Spur Drive-In was the largest which opened May 20, 1953 with Charlton Heston in “Pony Express” & Leo Genn in “The Girls of Pleasure Island”. It was owned in 1956 by E.A. Asking.
