Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Basin Drive-In is the smallest drive-in in Utah, with a capacity of 200 cars. The drive-in was originally located in Vernal, but in 1958 Truxton Lund [1] purchased the theater and moved everything (including projection equipment, screen, and sign) to Mount Pleasant. [2]

The Basin Drive-In is closed during the winter months but is open during the summer months.
