The Drive-In was opened in June 23, 1950 when it was operated by Harvey Fast. It could accomodate 208 cars. By 1955 it was operated by Harvey Fast and Co-Op Theatre Services. It is one of the few outdoor theaters which is still in operation in South Dakota. The Winner drive-in can accomodate 375 cars, and features a playground, and a section of outdoor stadium style seats. Harvey Fast passed away and the drive-in continued to be run by his wife. From 2020 it is operated by his daughter & her husband. The theatre’s season runs from May through September.
The Winner Drive-In is one of three drive-ins to be located in Winner (the others were the Pix Drive-In, opened in 1953 and closed in 1998 and the shortlived Shoo-Fly Drive-In which opened in 1949 and possibly only lasted one season). They have their own pages on Cinema Treasures.
