Claremont Drive-In

The Claremont Drive-In was constructed and opened on July 7, 1950. Sitting on the east side of town, the drive-in was owned and operated by Camache.

The drive-in managed to make it at least into 1987, but was subsequently closed and was demolished in 1989. Today, a Hobby Lobby sits on the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

The Claremont Drive-In was open until about 1987, when it was razed to build a shopping center adjacent to what’s now called the Claremont Marketplace on Washington Street, when then housed Claremont Triple Cinemas (the same owner, I believe, owned the Drive-In at this time), and now is home to Claremont Cinema 6. The anchor store in this new plaza was a Kmart, replacing the existing Kmart in the Marketplace. Adjacent to the new Kmart were several additional store units. Today a Hobby Lobby is the main store that sits on the former Claremont Drive-In property, not a car dealership as stated above.

The theater was demolished in 1989. The Kmart that sits in the former theater’s spot opened on March 15, 1990. It was a relocated Kmart. The original Kmart location on 345 Washington closed on the same day the 367 Washington location opened its doors.
