The 1949-50 and 1950-51 Theatre Catalogs each had only one drive-in in West Helena, the 4th Street, Exec: Ed Blair, capacity 300. I’m not sure whether that’s the same drive-in.
The 1952 Theatre Catalog had only one drive-in in West Helena, the Airvue, Exec: J. L. Anderson, capacity 200.
The Exhibitor, March 5, 1952: “S. W. Anderson, West Helena, Ark., … announced the opening of his Airview Drive-In.”
The Exhibitor, March 26, 1952: “The Airview Drive-In, West Helena, Ark., and the Starlight, Kosciusko, Miss., opened for the season.”
The Motion Picture Almanac listed the Airvue through its 1976 edition. When it rebooted its drive-in list in 1977, West Helena’s drive-in became the Dixie.
