Could this be the Carroll Drive In, which was located on Highway 22 about halfway between Huntingdon and McKenzie? I don’t know a lot about it, but it was open in late 70’s and early 80’s, and is now gone.

Not the drive-in. It’s listed as a stand alone theater in the 1970 motion picture almanac. J.H Carothers was president of Rockwood Amusements at that time.

At the link below, you can see (at least as long as the item is for sale) a reproduction of a postcard advertising the weekly movies at the Carroll Drive In and Court Theatre in Huntingdon for the week of May 15-May 21, 1966

I grew up in a town close to Huntingdon in the 60’s and 70’s, and drove through Huntingdon on fairly regular basis then, and can say with a fair amount of certainty that here was not another walk in theater besides the (still open) Court Theater in Huntingdon as late as 1970, though there may have been an earlier walk in theater named the Carroll Theater. Huntingdon is the county seat of Carroll County. I know the Carroll Drive In was in operation in the 60’s, 70’s, and through the early 80’s. Highway 22 between Huntingdon and McKenzie is now a four lane highway, and I remember the screen of the Carroll Drive In was very close to the highway when it was a two lane highway, so it may have been a victim of the widened highway.
