Cactus Drive-In

The Cactus Drive-In was opened April 29, 1949 with Doris Day in “Romance on the High Seas”. It was listed as a twin-screen drive-in theatre from 1952, when the operator was C.C. Hamm.

There is a possibility that the Cactus Drive-In was later renamed Big Sky Drive-In. It was closed on October 10, 1958.
