Still missing: when did the East Sprague Drive-in shut down?

Last week The SR's business column Here's the Dirt featured a story on the new storage center built by Harlan Douglass just south of Interstate 90 near the Sprague exit.

The six-acre site is on the former home of the East Sprague Drive-in. One thing we could not find was the date the drive-in closed.

In the 1960s the drive-in was the largest in the Spokane area.

We'd send two free reporters notebooks (whoo-hoo) to whoever can give us some documentation on the closing of the East Sprague Drive-in.
