The Lynn Auto Theatre opened in 1937 as a single screen drive-in called Boyer’s Auto Theatre. In 1967 a second screen was added. This drive-in is the oldest operating drive-in theater in Ohio.

Saw double feature of “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” and “Heartbreak Hotel” back in ‘89-the only time I’ve ever been to a drive-in.

“Come as you are in the family car” was also the slogan for Pacific Drive-ins in Southern California in the fifties and sixties. With the advent of adult films at drive-ins in the late sixties and seventies, the phrase took on a new interpretation.

From Rich Reding at the Lynnn Drive-In Movies: Yes the Lynn has converted to digital Projection. Both screen One and Two have Barco projectors with GDC servers. We converted last year 2013. Thank you

Chris1982 thank you so much for keeping us updated on the drive ins. They are a dying breed that need to make a big comeback.

Mike, I agree, the drive-ins are a dying breed, and with the conversion to digital, more just can’t afford the transition. You hate to see them go but it is the same with the small town theatres and the neighborhood houses everything is all but gone.
