This opened on February 2nd, 1972 as part of the Cinema City Complex that included the Moonlite Drive-In. Later on, it became part of SRO Theatres and Cineplex Odeon in 1987 who closed it in 1989 after 12 new screens opened nearby. Grand opening ad posted.

Built behind the Moonlite Drive-in, not the Motor Vue Drive-in.

Opened on screen 1 with “Sometimes a great notion” and on screen 2 with “The go-between”.

Cineplex Odeon closed the theater after business on 1/8/1989. Unless somebody reopened it I believe the 1998 is a typo, as I was unable to find it referenced in the Bellingham Herald after 1989 unless every article referred to it by a new name.

3200 W Maplewood Dr puts the theater a bit too far south, behind another old drive-in.

I worked for SRO Theaters starting in 1981. SRO purchased the Viking and the Moonlite the mid 1970’s from the original independent owner who did not believe in showing “R” rated films, either at the Viking or at the Moonlite. SRO did not have an issue with booking “R” films.
