The Ideal Drive-In was opened on October 12, 1950 with Donald O'Connor in “Yes Sir, That’s My Baby”. By 1955 it was operated by A.P. Papayanakos of the American Theatre. Now an abandoned drive-in that closed in the late-1970’s to early-1980’s. Screen, ticket booth, and concession stand are all still there. Located on US Route 11, less than 1 mile south of downtown Canton.

This drive-in was south of Remington Ave. I Can’t tell if the screen is still up, but the box office and snack bar gone. Snack bar foundation is still there.

Also, apparently there was a go-cart track built on the grounds.
