Opened in September 1952. On May 9, 1953, Boxoffice reported, “JOHN DAY, ORE. - Bob Keerins has purchased the Blue Mountain Drive-In west of here from Curtis Cheadle of John Day and Edward Patterson of Prairie City. Cheadle and Patterson opened the theatre last September”.

The 1955 Motion Picture Almanac listed the Blue Mountain with a capacity of 340 cars.

The drive-in was still intact in a 1981 aerial photo and outlined in a 1984 topo map, but it had been mostly dismantled by a 1994 photo.

Looks like its now a junkyard, the concession building and screen were actually both still standing in a 2016 aerial photo.
