It was originally a single screen drive in. The second 38' x 76' screen was assembled in 1986 using parts from a dismantled drive in screen tower, which originally measured 60' x 120', fabricated by Selby Industries. The original wood screen tower was destroyed in a 1997 arson fire and was replaced that year with the remaining parts from the aforementioned screen tower. As a result of the fire, a planned third screen will not be built.

The U.S. 23 Twin Drive-In Theatre was designed by Frank Boomer and was never part of a theater chain. It has been primarily owned by the Warrington family from day one. Its capacity between the two screens is 1,500 cars.
