Abandoned Moab, Utah Drive-in: One Moab for the road

I'm always delighted at the site of an abandoned drive-in, and a nice one greeted us upon our arrival back in 2006 in the pretty town of Moab, Utah, near extraordinarily beautiful Arches National Park. There didn't appear to be a screen anymore, just a cool old retro sign, a disheveled hut at the former entrance and lots of tumbleweed-like growth surrounded by stunning Utah landscape. Must have been quite the time, watching "Son of Flubber" under the stars in this awesome Western locale back in the day. The handy website tells me there was a drive-in in Moab called the Grand Vue at one time so I assume this is what's left. A grand view indeed.
