The Park Layne Drive-In Theatre in Park Layne, Ohio is now closed. Thank your for your patronage. The Park Layne which opened on June 29, 1962 as The Park Layne 69 Drive-In Theatre played its final film in August 2007. It was unclear if Park Layne Drive-In Theatre would return this season, however it sad but true it will not return.

The Park Layne Drive-In Theatre was built by Chakeres Theatres and could hold 600 cars. An odd but favorite fact about the Park Layne Drive-In Theatre is that the projection room is located on the top of the concession stand. Park Layne Drive-In Theatre is also known for a fire that extensively damaged the concession stand on August 21, 1965. The fire was caused by a popcorn popper.

So why was it closed and what will become of it?

Probably like everything else, the land got expensive, and somebody is going to build condo’s or stores. Why else would it close? Oh, I forgot, everyone wants to see movies in “digital projection” now at the sheetrock multiplex near you.
