NYozoner commented about Mt. Healthy Drive-In on Oct 28, 2014 at 7:05 pm

Back in 2005, another commenter mentioned a second Mt. Healthy Drive-In, “The other Mt Healthy Drive-In was located at 6 Monroe Drive.”

To the best of my knowledge, there is no Monroe Drive in Mt. Healthy. Maybe there was 50 years ago, but that doesn’t help us much now. Does anyone have any information on this other drive-in? Approximately what decade did it operate, approximately when did it close? What part of town was it in?

HistoricAerials.com shows the drive-in open at that location as early as 1955.

@Mike Rivest: That ad could have been for the opening of the 1963 season, and not their first season. Drive-ins would frequently have Grand Opening ads every season when they reopened in the spring.

Any outdoor screen over 100 feet wide would almost have to be scope.

@Alonzo: Thanks for posting those pics! What a great piece of drive-in history! Love the shot of the neon lit up on the back of the screen tower, from the days when the back of screens were a work of art!

Al, I believe the intention is to help people understand where the drive-in once used to be, using the best possible current address information.
