Creston's Valley Drive-In

The Vallee Drive-In was in operation since 1955 and was one of the few remaining drive-ins left in Canada. The Valley Drive-In was proudly owned and operated by the Creston Valley Youth for Youth Society.

It is a business/education venture with it’s goals being self sufficiency and youth job creation. It was closed in 2002. The screen tower and other buildings still stand in 2013.

Hi all, I am new to the site and looking for help. I am a researcher on a book dealing with cinema in British Columbia. I would love to include reminiscences about specific theatres, photos, or any information about how film and theatres in general affected your life and/or community. This would include rented films, documentaries from libraries, as well as local theatres or film study groups. Any information you would like to share would be most welcome.

Anyone interested can contact me at

Thanks for sharing your love of movies!

Still standing intact in modern times and zero photos posted? Sad!

From the Google Maps overhead, the screen appears to be intact, but the concession stand/projector booth may not be in the same shape.

Even the ramps have faded considerably. The addition of houses has made finding the entrance road difficult as well.

I’m surprised it closed in 2002 since from what we see on the Google Maps overhead, it appears to have been closed a decade or two earlier than that given the trees and weathering.

Original name was apparently spelt “Vallee”.
