IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho business owner has announced plans to transform a former drive-in movie theatre in Idaho Falls into a recreational vehicle resort catering to short-term rentals. 

Zach Teichert purchased the former Sky Vu Theatre and expects it to reopen as a RV resort by late 2021, the Post Register reported.

“Each spot will be paved and most will be larger pull-through sites. We will have a general store, bathrooms, laundry room, and pickleball courts for our guests,” Teichert said. “It’s close to the I-15 and that area is continuing to be developed.”

Teichert noted that Idaho Falls is the last major town on the way to Yellowstone and Jackson, Wyoming.
