The street view is wrong. It’s actually at 35.269099, -81.319249.

From the Save The Ro-Na Facebook page: “The Ro-Na Theater in Ironton, Ohio has been around since 1957. It’s located at 314 South 3rd Street.”

This is now an empty lot. I went to take pictures today and found that it had been demolished.

BTW, I found the location using http://www.historicaerials.com/ Great resource for finding old drive-ins.

Yes, Bob, it was located on the NE corner. I went looking, but there’s nothing left to take a picture of.

The entrance to the theaters was just below the chiropractor sign. The two auditoriums were directly behind in the raised area over the roof. “Now Playing” windows are available on the brick post just to the left of the entrance and just to the left of the barber pole. They have since been removed.

Address should be 644 W. Dickson. This is located just down and across the street from the U Ark Theater, which is 647 W. Dickson.

This should be changed to closed at the very least. All that remains of the Corbin Drive-in is the sign.

Pretty impressive pic of the Queen Anne, closed, but with the sign still up.

I think it’s kind of cool. Definitely a “must-see” stop on my upcoming “wild weekend in WV”. (When my wife goes to Spain on business. Does anyone party like me?)

Bill Eichelberger commented about Booneville Theatre on Dec 2, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I was passing by Ewing on 58 Alternate and noticed the rear of a large building that I thought may have been a theater. I doubled back and was wrong, but when I looked in the other direction, there was the Ewing. I didn’t know it existed because I hadn’t planned to be in Virginia (long story,) so I hadn’t researched it. And I was wrong about the Park. I did get pics of it on Saturday.

I stumbled onto a couple on my trip last weekend. The Ewing in Ewing, Virginia, and two drive-ins, the Lonesome Pine and Central, also in Virginia. I was in Middlesboro, but missed the Park. I was able to keep away from the interstates for all but the drive from home to Lexington and from Lexington to home. Pretty proud of myself. ;–)

I just stumbled onto this one, so I can imagine that more are out there. Did you get pictures or remember locations?
