Former Big Sky Drive in

Built in 1955 off of Old Wawawai Road less than half a mile west of Sunnyside Park, the Big Sky Motor Movie Drive-In was one of three drive-ins in Pullman. It was closed in 1985 and demolished soon after.

After over 20 years of the area being untouched, a housing development was planned in 2007, and built there in 2009. As of 2009, the building that housed the original projection booth was the only part of the drive-in that still remained, and could be found in the new neighborhood on Big Sky Court. This most likely has been torn down by now.

I can now confirm that the projection booth for the drive-in was demolished. It was removed in the summer of 2012. (Thank you to Tim Gehring for the information.)

Now part of the Big Sky neighborhood in Pullman.

Approx. address for this ozoner was 1005 Marcia Dr, Pullman, WA 99163. This points next to the drive in entrance. Box office foundation is still there.

Please update.

I believe that all traces of the box office was removed by 2006. The long, rectangular slab present near what was the entrance and the main road does not appear until 2006.

Plus, there is a similar slab further up what was the entrance road that also doesn’t appear until 2006. Both seem unrelated to the drive-in.

I can find no trace of the old drive-in remaining. But on a side note, all the stuff piled up in the backyard of 1207 Big Sky Court makes me wonder just what is going on? ;)
