They have a great history of this drive-in on their website under “about us”.

The Rodeo was just voted ‘Best Movie Theater’ in Western Washington, the poll was sponsored by KING-TV. Not just best drive-in, but best Overall. And that’s some steep competition including Cinerama & the Uptown in Seattle, plus the Blue Mouse in Tacoma.

I like to think of the Rodeo as “the best little BIG drive-in in the Northwest” By that, I mean it has 3 screens and holds over 800 cars, but still maintains an atmosphere of intimacy. The Snack Bar cooks everything to order, they’ll give you a pager so you don’t miss too much of the movie. And they still have a playground down front of the main screen.

Something unprecedented in the history of the Rodeo Drive-In Theater: They are reopening in the winter on December 17, 2015 for a 4 week run of the new Star Wars movie!

According the website for this drive-in, the name Rodeo is short for right on de entertainment order(according to newspaper articule from the day before the drive-in opened). There is a swap meet there too!! The Rodeo Drive-in has parking at the back of the ramps for flying saucers(according to the website), possibly unique!?

During the coronavirus outbreak, the Rodeo is open to fantastic business. KIRO TV7 did a great story on it:

According to the Rodeo Drive In’s facebook page, they now have a brand new marquee! It’s gorgeous! They are still open during the winter to make up for being closed (like other Washington state drive-ins) for several months during the prime drive-in season by order of the governor.
