Sheridan Drive-In

Grand opening ceremonies were held April 20, 1951, for the lovely landscaped Sheridan Drive-In. The opening movie was Burt Lancaster in “Vengeance Valle” By booking G-rated double features, adding extra short subjects, and offering a free kiddie carnival beneath the screen tower the Sheridan attracted family trade.

No trace of this drive-in remains today.
