This drive-in opened in 1953 and closed in 1960. The screen was later destroyed in a storm.

Looks like it held more than 200 cars too

Plus, the twinned drive in appears on the 1968, 1976 and 1982 topographical maps which would indicate that it was open after 1960.

I would submit the possibility of either the information or the location being wrong in some manner.

The 231 was not a twin drive-in. What you are seeing in the aerial view is the Parkway Drive-In that was butted up next to the 231 drive-In.

Mister Comics you are correct on layout of both drive-ins. I’m surprise they did not open the Parkway at the old location of the 231 DI.
