It's a tradition for many movie goers, but after this summer finding a drive-in movie theater may be near impossible.
You'll find it around the bend, up the gravel drive and on a large grassy field. It's the last drive-in movie theater in Eastern Washington.
"I'm third generation. My grandfather actually taught me how to be a projectionist when I was 13," said Auto Vue Drive-in Theater owner Steve Wisner.
The Auto Vue has been a Colville staple for decades with Wisner's parents buying the lot back in 1974. For some it's a tradition, a right of passage. For others it's sacred ground.
"And everybody that grew up here, grew up here in this little drive-in. Or was conceived here. It's hard to say," said a laughing Wisner.
The theater looks a little rough around the edges and it seems every season the weather and vandals beat it up a little more.
"Three years in a row. Nothing like breaking windows," said Wisner.
Soon, the decades of history will end.�
"This place is going to be ending on it's 60th anniversary," said Wisner.
