Council Bluffs Drive-In


Sept 14,2006-- Part of Council Bluffs history that may be gone forever.  With the widening of the South Omaha Bridge Road will come some changes for the drive-in.  Built in 1950. Hope it survives the road project!!

Mar 10,2007-- Bad news.  The Council Bluffs Drive-In is being demolished.  It has been sold for "development".  I didn't get pictures of the big screen coming down, I think it was dropped on the 7th.

The speaker posts are gone.  The whole drive-in  will be gone in a few days.  I'll try to get more pictures.
