Amusement Park Drive-in
Billings, MT
Sunset Drive-in
Miles City, MT
The Amusement Park Drive-In sign and screen came from the Park Drive-in in Cody, WY which closed in 2003. The sign was originally installed on the back of the screen in Cody. The little "Amusement" panel was added in Billings and it was installed at the entrance. This drive-in opened in 2005 and a second screen was added to the back of the tower in 2007. In 2022, the screentower was destroyed by a fire. It is still uncertain if it will be rebuilt. For more, see this website.

The Sunset Drive-In was built in 1949 and closed sometime in or after the 1980s. This sign was moved to a new location on private property by 2010. This photo is from 2022. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Starlite Drive-in
Bozeman, MT
The Starlite Drive-In opened in 1950 and closed in 1989. The top part of the sign was saved and is currently in storage at Filmlites Productions. In 2020, a 25-foot-wide LED screen was installed at the site and films were shown. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
