The Valley 6 Drive-in Theatre opened up for business in 1968. Apparently, despite the name Valley "6", the drive-in now only has 5 operating screens after one of the towers was damaged in a storm. More information about this can be found at Cinema Treasures. The marquee is quite large and can't be missed from the road. 07-08

The Motor Vu Drive-in Theatre was a popular stop for outdoor theatre enthusiasts traveling on the 99. This theatre originally opened in 1952. Catching the attention of motorists with its brightly painted marquee and pictures shows illuminating against the stars, the Motor Vu was a Lebanon favorite for for over 50 years. Shown on the marquee, Monsters Inc and The Rookie are typical first-run types of movie that were shown at this open air theatre through its existence.

Unfortunately like many other drive-ins, the Motor Vu was closed down in 2003 and demolished in 2004. A Walmart store has occupied this site since 2005. 07-08
