Opening in 1946 was the K&K Drive-in named for owners J.F. Knuth and L.A. Knowles. There’s room for 636 cars.

I have found no evidence of a drive-in on North Eagle Road during the time frame when it was open.

A 1971 aerial photo shows nothing. However, there was a drive in about 1 mile west of North Eagle Road at 1375 E Fairview Ave which appears to fit the description of the K & K.

Today, there are a couple of stores that sit on the property, but no trace of the drive-in being present anymore. http://tinyurl.com/o7tnphk

Boxoffice, July 19, 1947: “The new K&K Drive-In Theatre, first drive-in in the Boise valley, was to have opened July 16, according to J. F. Knuth, builder and manager. The new 500-car drive-in stands on a 12-acre plot of former farm land two and a half miles east of Meridian on Highway 30 and seven miles from Boise. It is equipped with in-car speakers.”
