It was actually named Cedar Rapids Twin Drive-In. The theater itself listed their screens as West and East. The West screen opened on June 11, 1969 with Richard Widmark in “Death Of A Gunfighter” and Elvis in “Speedway”, but however, its East screen was originally scheduled to open two days later on June 13, 1969 but delayed due to severe weather.

The East screen opened one week after its delaying announcement. A short time after the East screen opened, the theater witnessed its first vehicle accident.

The Cedar Rapids Twin Drive-In closed at the end of the 1987 season.
