North Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1948 as the Terre Haute Drive-In with a car capacity listed at 650 cars. It was operated by 4th Avenue Amusement until 1975 when United Artist Theatres took over. UA renamed it the North Drive-In and operated it until it closed in 1985.

Any further information on this drive-in would be appreciated.

The address listed here is a bit off. It’s located on the southwest corner of N. Lafayette St. and E. Park Ave. Google street view currently shows it’s an empty field and the screen remains standing.

The 1972 aerial that is uploaded shows the old Terre Haute Drive-in at the corner of Hawthorne and the North Drive-In about six blocks to the north. I think the North and the Terre Haute drive-ins were separate.

Goggle Earth 2012. It looks like they made the lake bigger.

Not sure if TH Drive In and North were seperate. Will ask around. Here is a photo from 1952 of the play area at TH Drive In. http://images.indianahistory.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/P0129&CISOPTR=437&CISOBOX=1&REC=13

According to an acquaintance, Before this one was built, in 1968, there was another North Drive-In up the street a little ways that burnt. It was on a side road. So there were two North Drive Ins. I will try to locate the photo of it being constructed in the Indiana Historical Society Martin Collection and post it later.
