According to this article, 2010 will most likely be the last year for this nearly sixty-year-old theater. Its owner, Sun Basin Theatres, is signaling that it plans to close it, along with another theater in East Wenatchee, and open a new megaplex in a converted former Kmart by May of 2011: View link

There were two drive-in theaters in the Wenatchee area when I was a kid, both owned and operated by the people that ran the Vitaphone theater. The “Auto Vue” drive-in (built first) was at the North end of Wenatchee in the Sunnyslope area. The Vue Dale was in the South end near the Malaga area. As a kid, I only remember the Vue Dale having one screen (at that time).

The Vue Dale Drive-In grand opening advertisement was found, but I cannot read the newspaper date because on how freaking blurry the picture is, so its opening date was partially found but was lost still. The theater opened as a single-screener with “I’ll See You In My Dreams” and “The Rose Bowl Story” with no extra short subjects, and was twinned sometime in the 1970s.
