Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Opened by 1955, the Lynn Family Drive-In; this could mean it was operated by the Lynn family, or that it booked pictures geared to attract a family audience. At any rate, it held a 200 car capacity. It was still open in 1954.

Boxoffice ran an obituary for Walter “Watt” Long in its April 18, 1960 issue. “About five years ago he erected the Hollis Drive-In about a mile from the downtown section. About the time he took ill he turned over the two theatre properties (including the indoor Watt) … to his assistant in show business, Raymond Patton, who now operates them.”
