Albuquerque 6 Drive-In

The Albuquerque 6 Drive-In had its Grand Opening on April 21, 1978. Its final advertisement in the Albuquerque Journal was in mid-September 1995, and it had been razed by the time a 1996 aerial photo was taken.

According to the 1981 Motion Picture Almanac, the Albuquerque 6 Drive-In’s main screen served 2,100 cars, and each of the other five served 350. It was closed on September 17, 1995.

The Rio 24 multiplex was built on the site (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The site is now a cinema complex(Century Rio 24 Plex and XD). Was that a race track(go kart?) at the bottom of the drive-in in the above photo?

The 6’s final ad in the Albuquerque Journal was on Sunday, Sept. 17, 1995. A month later, the local papers reported that Century Theaters had received the city’s conditional approval to level the drive-in and build a huge indoor multiplex.
