With warmer weather approaching, the fate of drive-in movie theaters across the country is becoming known. A recent example of one that is not going to open for business in 2017 is the Motor Vu Drive-In in Dallas, Oregon.

The theater's Facebook page is full of messages from fans that are bemoaning the loss of the drive-in, which first started showing movies in 1953. According to a reply from the page's administrator, the landowner did not renew the lease for the theater. An effort last year to raise funds via a crowdfunding campaign to purchase the land outright fell far short.

Fortunately, the 99W Drive-In in Newberg (about 31 miles away) does appear to be showing movies for the 2017 season. We're working on getting their showtimes updated, but until then, you can select the links for the theater's official web site and Facebook page.
