Riverside Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This drive-in opened in the early-1950’s as Lee’s Woodland Drive-In. Lee’s Drive-In closed in 1978 and remained closed for seventeen years.

In 1995 Jim Lipuma renovated the drive-in and renamed it the Galaxy Drive-In.

After operating for almost ten years, this drive-in closed again on September 26, 2004.

In July 2005, the drive-in reopened under new ownership and a new name, the Riverside Drive-In.

The Galaxy Drive in will re-open under new ownership on July 20, 2005.
It’s name has been changed to the Riverside Drive-In.

The name change was made by the new owner Ament Theatres, Inc. to avoid any connection with the debts or other problems associated with the former Galaxy Drive-In operators. The opening features will be “Herbie The Love Bug” and “Madagascar”

Yes, it parked 250 cars and in 1956 it was operated by Hanna Theatre Services.Which ran quite a few Drive-ins in that state.
