The Sunset Drive-In operated from September 2, 1949 when it opened with Loretta Young in “Mother is a Freshman” & Randolph Scott in “Canadian Pacific”. It was closed at the end of the 1986 season. It used it’s original Brenkert BX-80 projectors and RCA sound system throughout it’s life.
The screen was a wooden structure using telephone poles for basic support. The picture area was 40 feet high by 94 feet wide. It had asbestos tiles for the picture area.
The theater was demolished in 1987 and was replaced with Tumwater City Hall which now occupies the site. The original driveway of the theater now takes you to the Timberland Regional Library next door to the City Hall.
