Video of the Auto Vue, open for its final season

Yes, we covered the upcoming closing of the Auto Vue (Colville WA) months ago, and no, we don’t enjoy dwelling on bad news. But we do love our embedded video, and this offering is worthy.

KXLY, Spokane’s news leader, presented a lovely video postcard of the Auto Vue and its owner, Steve Wisner. There’s not a lot of new information, except that over half the money Wisner would have needed was for upgrading the screen as well as buying a digital projector. Spending a couple of minutes looking around that well-worn physical plant, that’s easy to believe. Thanks to KXLY for preserving this one last look at a 60-year-old drive-in.
