I just read the story and viewed the TV video by Mike McCarthy about this Drive-In that could be closed, again. I hope the citizens of Roane County TN can and will support this fading American icon for when they are gone they are gone forever!

I also sent Mike McCarthy an email about this Drive-In and with the hope that the citizens of Roane County will and continue to support their Drive-In. There aren’t many left these days! So if you wish to write him perhaps he’ll forward all of our thoughts and concerns to the Mid-Town owners so they know there are folks out there who do care. Mike’s email address is

Drove past and stopped to look in the gate on May 24 2015. The Midtown is closed, but all the buildings are standing, appear in good condition, the paint looks crisp, even the grass is mowed. Just no one around. Nothing on the marquee.

Will: Reopen it!

This appears to be in nice condition!! Judging by this, what appears to be, a 2016 video! Even the snack bar has a glass encasement with displays of die cast cars, etc. still there.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXhShVjB-x8

Probably could afford to switch to digital.

Someone is definitely looking after this site, the grass was mowed in the most recent Google Earth image. There does appear to be some damage to the screen but overall it still looks in good shape.
