Opened by September 1953 as the Moonlite Outdoor Theatre with a single screen, it was owned by L. Cochovetry. Loew’s took over operations of the drive-in in 1961. It was twinned and renamed the Chippewa Twin Drive-In. Car Capacity for the ozoner was listed at 600 cars.
In later years (from 1984) the Chippewa Drive-In went over to screening adult XXX movies and closed around 1988. It was later demolished. The Showplace 16 was built on the site of the former Chippewa Drive-In.
Any further information or corrections on this drive-in would be appreciated.
