Midway Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located on Middletown Road, the Midway Drive-In opened in either 1953 or 1954. For a very brief time the Midway Drive-In showed regular product but soon became a soft core adult venue featuring such things as "Adam & Eve" and nudist camp documentaries. It became a rite of passage for local teen boys to camp out on the hill above the screen on adjacent Kaylor Road. The Midway Drive-In closed in the late-1960’s. It is now a Stauffers garden center.

You need to get your facts straight, It ran until 69 and was run by Walter S. Finch Jr.This is where I learned to run movies from Walt’s brother Claude Finch. I was there till the end, may have even been early 70’s.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 1025 Middletown Road. It is an empty field as it was behind where the garden center & the car wash are located now.

I must confess. My pals and I did stop up off of Kaylor Road more than one summer evening.

It looks like it was closed (No screen tower) in 1970 by looking at a aerial from the same year.
