The Alberta Bair Theater has made Billings an integral part of the routing of major national and international artists and attractions in the United States and in the world.
My friend and projectionist, Charles Caron, and I have moved it 4 times through the years.
My wife would bring it up every time we had a disagreement "and we have a caboose! The back projection booth is a 1938 truck that I bought out of the Billings Gazette for $300.00 and rebuilt in our shop, just to be different.
Our amusement park consists of rides we used on the carnival and we are working on adding more this summer.
In 1987, the Alberta Bair Theater became a reality.
Created with a dream of bringing the excitement of the performing arts to the people of the Northern Rockies and to enhance the quality of life in Billings, the Alberta Bair Theater has added a very special dimension to our lives that cannot be satisfied in any other way.
As a presenter the Alberta Bair Theater has set a standard for excellence in the Intermountain West.In its brief history, the Alberta Bair Theater has brought to audiences the finest performers in every discipline of the performing arts, including classical and popular music, country music and jazz, opera, ballet, modern and ethnic dance, comedy, drama and musical theater.The Amusement Park Drive-in is the old Park Drive-in from downtown Cody, Wyoming, which opened in 1946 and ran thru 2003.We then tore down the wood screen tower and hauled it to Billings.We rebuilt it during 20 and opened it in July 2005.Showing movies on both sides of it is our own concept. The caboose is a 1909 wooden model that I have owned for 20 years.
