While named after the nearby coal mining town of Iaeger, this is in a small area called Sandy Huff.

The drive-in, on the corner of Sandy Huff Road and County Road 52/21, became well known as the subject of the O. Winston Link photograph, “Hot Shot Eastbound” (1956), showing a packed drive-in watching a plane on the screen while a train on the railroad next to the drive-in passes by.

The Film Daily Year Book of 1944 shows its capacity was 270, although an earlier edition shows it was 190. The Ieager Drive-In was listed in the 1939 Film Daily Year Book. In editions of Film Catalog from 1952-1955 it is listed with a 142 car capacity.
