Driggs, ID: Spud Drive-In Not Reopening for 2022 Season

Posted on Thursday, May 5, 2022 and updated on Friday, September 8, 2023 3:33 PM

The Spud Drive-In in Driggs, Idaho will not reopen for the 2022 summer season.

According to an article published recently on EastIdahoNews.com (see list below), the drive-in movie theater's screen was toppled by a wind storm in April. A photo in the article shows the screen face-planted, with the support structure visibly broken.

The theater posted the following message on its Facebook page on May 2, 2022:

To our loyal friends-

We are saddened and beyond heartbroken to make this announcement. Due to the supply and demand of building material and advancing our 70 year old blueprints to 2020’s standards; we will not be opening this summer. This pains us significantly as we will be missing out on many summertime traditions. We promise when we reopen in 2023, we will throw one of the greatest parties the Teton Valley has ever experienced! Please stay tuned as we take you all along for the adventure of rebuilding!

Much love and appreciation,
The Spud Crew and Family

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.
