FairVu Drive-In

The FairVu Cinema Drive-In was opened on June 30 1965 with Tony Curtis in “Sex and the Single Girl” & Shelly Winters in “A House is Not a Home”. It was located at W. Fairview Avenue & Maple Grove Road and could accommodate 600 cars. This was the larger drive-in in the Boise area. Initially it was operated by Commonwealth Theatres followed by United Artists Theatres until it closed at the end of the 1994 season. It was demolished in 1997.

The area where the drive-in stood and all around there have really been developed with shopping and numerous car dealers. I served my mission for my church and one of my companions from my mission and now a close family friend lives in Boise so I am familiar with the area.

My son was born in 1992. I remember taking him to this drive in to watch Jurassic Park when he was just 2. He was in love with dinosaurs. We went to this drive-in numerous times and always enjoyed going to the drive-in. Sure do miss it.

This drive-in was on the same road as the Midway and were actually very close to each other, looks like this one lasted longer though.

The FairVu Drive-In Theatre launched in 1969. It fulfilled a 25-year lease closing at the end of season in 1994. (Technically, it opened as the FairVu Cinema Drive-In.)
