Highway 59 North,
1 person favorited this theater
This drive-in theater was built in 1953 and had parking spaces for 300 cars.
Located one mile north of Cherokee on Highway 59, it was a popular place to spend a hot summer night for both teenagers and families.
In the 1950’s and early-1960’s traveling entertainers, singers, magicians, etc. would perform their acts on the roof of the concession stand before the shows or during intermission.
Unfortunately, VHS tapes and cable TV proved to much for this theater. In the early-1970’s, it closed it’s gates and was eventually torn down.
Many can still remember the old jeep cruising up and down the rows keeping teens in line, family night, buck night and “Excuse me, would you open the trunk please?”
