The Apache Drive-in Theatre of Globe, Arizona is an example of the recent fate of drive-in theatres throughout the country. Seemingly in decent shape, weeds on lot notwithstanding, the Apache sports its proud single-screen right next to the major highway. However, giving away its fate is a single solitary sign on the lot advertising a multiplex theatre coming soon. Goodbye Apache. Sorry we hardly knew ya'.

 

UPDATE 07/03 : The Apache Drive-in is still open for business and going strong! See photos taken in 2003 below. Many thanks to Rob Svirskas for photos and update. 07-03
