The Muncie Drive-In was opened July 3, 1947 with car capacity listed at 500. It was originally owned by Theatrical Management but by 1955 it was operated by Y & W Theatres. The drive-in closed September 1, 1986 and has since been demolished. The area is now retail space.

5518 is not correct, if you look at the Map, behind 5800 you can still see the remains of the Drive-In in the lawn.

Y. & W. Management Corp., of Indianapolias, Vern R. Young, President & Treasurer, had 17 theaters all in Indiana in 1967, including the Muncie Drive-In.

Could use more photos.
