A better address would be 2609 E Tipton St, Seymour, IN 47274. This is U.S. 50. The entrance was next to this location now Waffle House.

Steven’s Way is a road made on the property after the theater was razed.

jwmovies commented about Salem Drive-In on Sep 24, 2016 at 8:56 pm

The address given is incorrect.

This drive in was located outside of town in the opposite direction. Located southwest of the town itself.

Approximate location would be across the highway from 3778 IN-56, Salem, IN 47167.

In fact County Road 250 the road next to where the drive in stood is now South Drive In Theater Road. Though barely visible, almost all of the ramps are still there.

jwmovies commented about Paoli Drive-In on Sep 24, 2016 at 7:46 pm

The above address is incorrect as it points to West of town.

The drive in which is still intact is in fact being used by the gravel company. From aerials you can see newer buildings where the concession stand/projection booth used to be.

FYI Calcar Gravel is located at 860 E. US Hwy 150, Paoli, IN 47454. This address is the closest to what the drive in address is now. It actually points to the gravel pits next to the drive in itself.

jwmovies commented about Southview Drive-In on Sep 23, 2016 at 4:13 pm

It was a triple screen at the end. In a 1992 aerial, you can definitely see shadows of the additional screens in the back of the theater.

Please update.

jwmovies commented about 41 Outdoor Theater on Sep 23, 2016 at 3:41 pm

Look again at the photo above. Why would there be a sign facing Sheffield on the back of the screen itself if Sheffield was the rear of the theater? There would be no need for this signage if the actual entrance was at Highway 41.

And the sign has “41” in quotation marks as if to signify it’s not just the name but the landmark so everyone would know where the theater was.

Also when twinned like when the it was a single screen, the Box office was closer to Sheffield as were the exits.
