NYozoner commented about Showtown Twin Drive-In on Nov 13, 2016 at 8:47 am

The drive-in at this location is visible in an aerial photo from 1949, and on a topo map from 1947. The 1955 Film Daily Yearbook lists two drive-ins for Monroe, Louisiana, the Joy Drive-In and the Leo Drive-In. More research is needed to determine exactly which name this drive-in went under, during what years, and how early it opened.

Another drive-in on the southside of Monroe is visible in 1949 and 1956 aerial photos, and was located at the intersection of Jackson Street and Buckhorn Bend Road, in the northwest corner. This other drive-in was much more short-lived than the Showtown Drive-In, as it was not visible anymore in the 1969 aerial photos. Another drive-in, the Star, was located relatively nearby in West Monroe, across the river, and closed in the late 1960s when I-20 was built over it.

Probably short for Jonesboro-Hodge Drive-In, the two closest towns which it served.

This photo is incorrect, as the Super 40 Drive-In was demolished in 1962. The aerial photo shown here is of the Crystal Drive-In, which was on the same road, but further west.

There was a drive-in located at the I-184 interchange with N Curtis Rd. It is visible in 1951 aerial imagery. By 1971, the interchange has taken over the property. Not sure if this was the Boise Drive-In, or another drive-in. Maybe someone here can confirm.

They appear to be closed. Mid June 2015, website is inactive. Phone number is disconnected. No official Facebook page.

The Sky View Drive-In has been sold and will not be kept as a drive-in. It did not reopen for the 2015 season. The status should be updated to closed.

NYozoner commented about Keno Drive-In on Apr 13, 2015 at 9:03 pm

Status is definitely now closed. Extremely unlikely to reopen, as property owner has terminated the lease with the company which operated the drive-in, and has publicly stated that it will not re-open. Ever. Plans have been submitted to redevelop the property for retail.

No website. No Facebook page. No digital projector. Put this drive-in on the endangered list.

NYozoner commented about Vista Drive-In on Mar 22, 2015 at 5:55 pm

The aerial photo on this listing is of the Vista Drive-In, and should be removed. I’m fairly certain this entire listing should be removed.

The three drive-ins in the vicinity of Oceanside were named the Midway Drive-In, the Valley Drive-In, and the Vista Drive-In.

NYozoner commented about Midway Drive-In on Mar 22, 2015 at 4:39 pm

There were some other drive-ins around Eureka, Westerner Drive-In, Bel-Air Drive-In, and Humboldt Drive-In. One of those could have been the drive-in on the Myrtle Avenue near Lily Lane. Maybe someone local to the area can do some research to clarify.

The name of the drive-in should be changed in the header to Starlite Drive-In.

This drive-in did not reopen in 2014, and should be listed as closed.

The appropriate name for this location is Staten Island Drive-In. Fabian was the name of the operator.

There was another drive-in about ¾ mile to the west, also on US 80 near Valley Street. I-20 goes over it now. Does anyone know the name of that drive-in?

By any chance was this also called the Briggsmore 3 Drive-In at some point? It was located off Prescott Road near W Briggsmore Avenue.
