Ah.. thanks for putting this up! It’s now the Merlo Garage, where many Tri-Met buses park. The Max from Gresham to Hillsboro has a stop right next to it.

I saw a double feature at this drive in, on the opening night of “A View to a Kill”, which would have made it 24 May 1985, according to IMDB. It was followed by “Red Dawn”. Four of us drove over from college, crammed in a teeny car. Watching back to back movies from the back seat of a small car is very uncomfortable.

Checking the aerial photos, this site was vacant in 1970, a four-screen drive-in in 1981, 1990, & 1994, and some kind of bus or truck parking lot, screens still intact, in 2000.

Boxoffice, Jan. 21, 1974: Tom Moyer “announced that plans are under way to build a four-screen drive-in at Beaverton, Ore. Opening is scheduled tentatively for midsummer 1974.”

Correction: Now Clear Water Headquarters NEXT to the garage.

The correct address for this one is 2025 SW Merlo Ct, Beaverton, OR 97006. Not SW Merlo Rd.
