Located 2 miles south of Highway 11. The New Starlight Drive-In was opened in September 1968 and replaced the Starlight Drive-In on 8th Street. It reopened as the Southwinds Drive-In on March 29, 1974 with Dustin Hoffman in “Strawdogs” & Ewa Aulin in “Candy”. It had a capacity for 350 cars.

Some additional information: the drive in actually opened in September 1968. At the time, it was called the New Starlite Drive In and was a replacement for the former Starlite Drive In on 8th Street. In February 1974 the New Starlite was sold and the new owners renovated the property and it reopened in March as the Southwinds.
