The Bordertown Drive-In was a two screen ozoner that opened in 1951 with the car capacity given at 900. The drive-in closed in 1976.

The south screen and the concession building were destroyed by fire in 1977 and has since been demolished. There is a apartment complex on the site of the former drive-in.
