The Airport Drive-In opened before December 1948 [1] and closed after 1975. [2] The theater was owned by Ray F. Wilmart and had a capacity of 300 cars. [3]

The drive-in was located just south of one of the runways of the Salt Lake Airport. The theater has been demolished, possibly to allow for an extension of the runway.
