Quickie Time – The Notorious Daughter of Fanny Hill Opens Up the Tri-City Adult Autoview Drive In, Nov. 1971


11-11-71, Springdale, Arkansas – The Tri-City Drive In was the third of a small chain of Drive Ins operated by the Mini-Art Operating Company of Joplin, MO who ran this Adult version of the Autoview style DI – the kind of theater where there were a number of screens in a circle for your own personal viewing pleasure. Although in my opinion, it was certainly not the greatest of ideas as I’m more for the big outdoor screen, it was apparently alright for those who wanted their quick fix of Adult flicks in the area as the business continued until at least 1976. On the plus side, drivers on the road had no chance of seeing what was being viewed, but the major negative side to this theater was that it showed only one movie per night twice.

Still, it’s opening show should be of note to fans of Sexploitation. As clumsy as the idea was, it did have a line of 60’s-Early 70’s stuff.
