SRO Theaters owned this D. I. The company also owned a number of bowling alleys and several radio stations on the west coast. In the 1970’s, KBFW (930 AM) had it’s studios and offices on the second floor of the snack bar building.

Found this: about the radio station that shared the building with the Samish Drive In. I worked for SRO theater Division for some time in the 1980’s. They were a great company to work for. Pictures of the Drive In included.

AGAIN the correct address is 800 Lincoln St, Bellingham, WA 98229.

This is now the Lincoln Park & Ride lot. Ramps are used for parking. BO is used for tolls. Only the concession building and screens are gone.

Please update with the correct information.
