Actually Clarence the Heath drive in is really located in Hebron Ohio!! also Heath’s zip code has always been 43056 and Newark’s always 43055 wrong again!!

HEATH has been a city since 1955!!!!!!!

By the way the person who used to own the drive ins lives above the (heath) drive in that’s actually located in Hebron!!

her name is Sally Price!!

I stopped and looked at last summer. The drive-in is still standing but in bad condition. The concession stand/project booth was set on fire and destroyed. The screen tower looks decent yet. It could reopened with some work and $$$$$ !!

I was born and raised in Heath, OH. I can tell you that this drive in was (and still is) located on Hebron Rd (SR 79) in Heath, Ohio. Back in the day a lot of businesses in Heath were listed as Newark because they shared a zip code and Newark was the larger of the two cities. Heath now has its own zip code, 43056, and is BY FAR the better city when compared to Newark. Every single new business opens in Heath and I don’t know anyone who would rather live in Newark than Heath. I was born in 1970 and anytime after that there was never a drive-in on Channel St in Newark. The Newark drive-in was call the Valley Drive-In and was located on 21st Street on the north side of Newark. I have been to both many times, including on the grounds of the Heath theater within the last couple months. I also have a lot of memorabilia from both drive in theaters. Hopefully this clears things up. If you would like pictures of what I have to post on the site let me know and I will email them to you.

Kinda confused about the location… The 2nd picture in the first post says it’s a pic of the drive-in taken from Hwy 79. The highway is nowhere near Channel St. Google Earth shows no drive-in going back to 1994 on that residential street as well.

Street View shows the screen still existing on 79 South of town a ways. Near Reinhard Dr.
