Driggs, ID: Future of Spud Drive-In Brightening

Posted on Monday, May 6, 2024 3:31 PM and updated on Tuesday, May 7, 2024 9:17 AM

Opening Soon Sign

The Spud Drive-In in Driggs, Idaho last showed movies in 2021, but recent news reports are indicating that movies might be returning to the drive-in soon.

Located about two miles south of downtown Driggs, the drive-in first opened in 1953. It never reopened for the 2022 season after a storm knocked down the screen in April 2022. While they promised to return in 2023, it never reopened.

The Teton Valley News published an article recently (see below) that mentions that a crucial step in the theater's reopening has been approved. With a connection to the city's sewer system, the plan presented by the owners for the property has new life. That plan includes not only the outdoor movie theater, but also ten cabins that can be rented by the public.

If everything goes as planned, the operation will open in summer 2025. Until it reopens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Pierre's Playhouse in Victor and the Movieworks Cinema in Jackson, Wyoming. The closest drive-in is the Teton-Vu Drive-In in Rexburg, which is about 35 miles away.
