Both the West Theatre and the Y Not Drive-In were operated by Donald Johnson’s Johnson Theatres from 1966 until 1974. They were offered for sale in the classified section of various issues of Boxoffice in 1973, and the July 8, 1974, issue ran an item saying that both theaters had been sold to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Reese, effective June 2.
The item also said that when Johnson bought the theaters from in 1966, the West Theatre had been called the Rivola. He remodeled and renamed it, and also updated the drive-in, and both theaters were operated until 1973 by his brother, Franklin Johnson.
The Y Not Drive-In had a capacity for 293 cars.
