ONE OF THE LAST OF ITS KIND IN OREGON

99w-40
The 99W Drive-In outside Portland, Oregon in Newberg has been a family run business for three generations.

The 99W Drive-In Theatre opened originally in 1953.  It is one of only four drive-ins
left in operation in Oregon and the last one in the Portland area. The state once had
a total of 73.  

By December 31, the majority of American drive-in theaters must upgrade to digital
projectors or face closure. The switch to the new system costs roughly $80,000.
