A Prince Albert Now article from July 21, 2011 had a photo of the sturdy Pines screen being torn down. It said the drive-in’s “first owner was Andrew Russel in 1951.” It changed hands many times and had been idle “since the mid 2000s, after the last show played on the big screen many years ago.”

Same drive-in? Motion Picture Herald, April 24, 1954: “Two Saskatchewan drive-in theatres - the Valley drive-in at Fort Qu ‘Appelle and Webb’s drive-in, near Prince Albert - will not open this season.”
