North Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located near Peru, to the north of Kokomo on what was then Highway 54. The Drive-In was opened June 11, 1948 and was operated by Alliance Theater Corp. They renamed it North Drive-In by 1955. My father managed this site back in 1955 and we lived in a mobile home, next to the screen. The screen was still standing in 2002.

I did display advertising for the North and South Drive -Ins in the late 70’s when they were operated by Sportservice Corp. After the last season for the South we took all the speakers up to the North. The South did better business, but the land it was on was quite valuable so it was sold to a developer. I was managing the Paramount and State Theaters in Anderson, and did the ads for all the Indiana Sportservice Theaters also.
