Tower Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of four former drive-ins in Lorain County. Located in Elyria, Ohio, it was named after a large communication tower which shared the space, which still stands on the site.

The only thing that remains of the drive-in is the sign, which is now used for the storage unit that is now on site.

It may have been,I don’t live in Elyria so I wouldn’t know if they did or not unless they had a second entry on the same road where maybe they had an office. So I couldn’t tell you for sure.

Here is a May 1958 ad from the Elyria Chronicle Telegram:

The 6187 address takes you right to the sign if you plug it into Google Maps. Not very impressive, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

The first drive-in that I can remember attending….I was three, and they were showing “BRIDES OF DRACULA”.

Yep.It parked 400 cars and was owned in 1956 by Co-Operative.

I have an interesting question about this drive in. I own a 1959 Jeep CJ5 that I just restored. When I bought it there was a label inside the glove box door that read “Tower Drive-In 2301 Elyria Township Ohio.” I’m trying to find out more information about this Jeep. I assume it was used as a maintenance vehicle for this theater. Anybody know anything about it? Thanks.
