Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Bountiful Motor View Theatre was owned by J. N. Bills and had a capacity of 650 cars. The screen of the theater was on the west side of the drive-in and had exposed iron I-beam girders on its backside. In front of the screen was a sandbox where children could play. Sound was provided by heavy cast iron speakers which hung in the cars' windows. The drive-in rented portable heaters for use when it was cold. The fence arround the property was made of corrugated tin. Next to the drive-in, behind the screen, was a car dealership. On the other side of the drive-in was a church. After the theater was demolished, a strip mall was built on the site. (1)

The Bountiful Drive-In opened before 1950 and closed after 1977. The address for the theater was 6525 South US Highway 91 until 1968, when it changed to 2699 South Main Street. (2)
