This drive-in was operational in 2014. Should be listed as an open theatre.

Dawson Springs Rd at Henson Dr Hopkinsville, KY 42240

The above address is the correct location. Kenmore’s information refers to the Skyway Drive-In in the south part of town.

My apologies, the above map is correct. I had my USGS map off by 90 degrees when I was situating the drive-in. One of the headaches with Earth Explorer is that the maps do not always download with north facing up, causing some confusion with my original placement of the drive-in. The aerial photo from 1959 which I uploaded is now correctly oriented, and consistent with the Google Earth aerial photo above. Sorry for the misinterpretation of the photos, caught it right after I posted the first comment.

This photo is incorrect and should be removed. Aerial photos from 1951 and 1959 clearly indicate was not on this location, but on the south side of Trail 166. I will upload the correct aerial from 1959, which is the clearest of the two which are available on USGS Earth Explorer.

NYozoner commented about Mt. Healthy Drive-In on Oct 29, 2014 at 12:05 am

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.

By 1969, this drive-in operated with two screens.

The introduction should be corrected to show an opening year of 1936.
