This drive-in was built in an area that is on the outskirts of Richland, Washington. Originally considered “Lower Yakima”, Carl Heminger bought property in the area in the late-1940’s and wanted to call it Heminger City. The people who lived there preferred for it to be called Enterprise. People who grew up there in the late-1940’s/early-1950’s will call it by either name, or a combination of both names.

The drive-in was built in 1954, and the first films shown were Clark Gable in “Lone Star” and Dean Stockwell in “The Happy Years”. The Star-Vue Drive-In was short lived but it was shut down in 1959. The drive-in was on the land that is now behind a doctor’s office and the West Richland post office, land of which remains untouched.
