The listing for the location of the Starlite in Mount Holly, Ohio was a mistake.

From its Facebook page: The Starlite Drive-In opened in 1947. At that time a World War II Veteran Jerry Jackson from Williamburg, Ohio was the builder and owner until about 1968.

From me: The Starlite was listed under Mount Holly in the 1948-49 Theatre Catalog, plus following editions, all with Jerome Jackson. The 1953-63 MPAs call him Jerry Jackson, also in Mount Holly.

After a while, the MPAs moved the Starlite. I can’t find it in the 1969-82 editions, which had too many Starlite/Starlights to quickly pick through. In 1984-88 it was in Batavia, address 2255 Ohio Pike, owned by Holiday Amuse.

Really neat drive-in … They have up-dated the sound to your car radio .. no more window speakers …. and

The management is SMART! – in off season, they have Swap Meets and Car Shows to keep revenue comming in !!!!
