The Motor-Vu Drive-In opened on August 5, 1949 with Yvonne De Carlo in “Frontier Gal”. It was managed by Donald Welker. A 1955 story notes that the season opening in April was delayed because of the installation of a CinemaScope screen. Mr. Welker later assumed management of the Rich Theatre also.

The Motor-Vu Drive-In was listed in the 1988 International Motion Picture with a capacity of 300 cars.
