The Butch Cassidy Drive-In was located at 1443 Woodville Rd, Millbury, OH 43447-9706. It opened as the Woodville Drive-In on 7/15/49. It was renamed the Eastside Drive-In in May 1958, then the Butch Cassidy in May 1982. It closed in 1989.

The Miracle Mile’s 2nd screen opened in May 1977.

Here’s a permanent link to a photo of the Miracle Mile, very unique marquee. The Telegraph page can be found here. The Toledo area also had the Franklin Park, Toledo, Starlite, Jesse James, Maumee, and Parkside (Sundance Kid) drive-ins. I’m looking for a short-lived “Butch Cassidy Drive-In” that was supposedly near Northwood, anyone know about this one?

There’s a story in the Aug/Sept 2010 Reminisce Magazine about a young married couple in 1951, going to the Telegraph Drive In. They won their honeymoon trip money in a Lucky License (plate) contest. I see no Telegraph or other Drive-In theatres listed in Toledo. Any clues as to where they were?

This Drive-In opened on November 26th, 1954
It featured six entrance lanes for no waiting and no traffic jams and twelve exit lanes mean no tie-ups, no tiresome lines and no driving hazards. one of the best ads.
