The Hil'-Top Drive-in was opened in 1953 by Ralph Larned, who owned the two other theatres in La Crosse. It was located adjacent to the golf course on the south edge of La Crosse on the east side of Highway 183.
The single screen theatre operated until a tornado destroyed the original screen in 1966. It reopened the following summer for a short period of time. Sterling and Steve Bagby reopened the drive-in in 1971 and operated it until 1973, when it was permanently closed.
After a fire destroyed the town’s Country Club, the concession building became a club house for the golf course until the mid-1980’s. In 1986, the box office, fences, and parking ramps were removed. In 2002, the concession building was razed leaving only the screen tower standing.
