The Valley Drive-In was located in Williston, North Dakota in the Northwest part of the state. It was opened by 1952 and was one of two drive-ins in Williston (the other being the Lake Park Drive-In which opened in 1954). It parked 420 cars and was owned by Kuhlman and Gould. In 1954 Williston was the only city in North Dakota to have more than one drive-in. Fargo, the State’s largest city only had one drive-in during that period. The Valley Drive-In was still open in 1967.

Oilfield Safety, Incorporated occupies a part of the drive-in lot; its address is 2523 2nd Street West. The theater is gone, but it looks like part of the fence remains. The screen was at the corner of Front Street and 26th Avenue.

Open ~1950? I know for sure it was open in 1967. Anyone care to verify the exact dates?

Need more info and photos.

The Valley Drive-In was the first of the two drive-in’s in Williston. The Lake Park doesn’t show up until 1954.

A 1976 aerial shows the drive-in to be demolished. By 2010, all remaining traces of the drive-in were removed.
