According to one source I’ve seen, The Cardinal Drive In was also known as the 45 Drive In and the Hi-Way Drive In at various times, and was operated by the Malco Theater chain from 1961 to 1975. I went there quite a few times in the 80’s and 90’s, and it was the Cardinal Drive In then. It also doubled as a video store during the day, and I believe the video store is still in operation in the former concession stand. I also believe the screen and field are still intact so that it could be reopened.
