This was a replacement to an earlier Holiday Drive-In which was located on 30th Street. This drive-in operated from 1969 to 1988. The property was abandoned and deteriorating, although there had been some local interest in preservation. It was eventually demolished.

The original Holiday Drive In was entered from 28th Street. The drive was a long one. When 30th Street was cut though in the 1960s, the sign and the entrance were moved to 30th Street, and the old two-block drive from 28th became a city street. The entire operation was moved to North 28th Street and Lee Hill Road. I don’t know when it became a twin.

So the famous sign has actually been in three places. It has been restored, but it is in the twin form.

Was once part of the Highland Theatres chain. Should be added to the list of previous operators.
