The grand opening of this newly built drive-in theater was announced for Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock on May 18, 1955. The “Columbus Dispatch” ad stated it to be “central Ohio’s largest outdoor theater, spaciously located in an attractive outlying acreage (14 acres) just five miles from Broad & High.”
Movies were projected on a screen measuring 60 by 110 feet, accommodating the then new CinemaScope and VistaVision films. Sound was heard with individual car speakers and electric heaters allowed a year-round operation.
The concession stand was centrally located and had a large patio in the front for patrons who wished to sit outside of their cars.
The In-Town Auto Theatre closed on September 15, 1965.
