Clarksville Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was a drive-in theater that was located between New Albany and Clarksville. It was located on the left hand side of Brown Station Way if you are heading to Louisville. It would be directly after the soccer fields and Waste Water Treatment Department. All remnants of this are gone now except for the fencing. The area is now used a a tractor trailer parking lot for a local company.

The 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook lists a Drive-In theatre in Clarksville, which could be this theatre. Maybe there was another name for this theater, But I am too young to know.

The theater in FD Yearbook was probably not the Clarksville Drive-in; it was probably an older theater called the Theatreair Drive-in which became the Twin Drive-in after a second screen was added. The Theatreair was at 4505 Highway 31, which was apparently gone by 1970 if the information in the Rivest list is accurate,

I have not been able to locate an opening date for the Clarksville Drive-in, but the Eberson Archives indicate that Drew Eberson designed a drive-in for Clarksville in 1972.
