No … it isn’t. I’m a cartographer. If you want to see the locations of drive-ins in this area go to Wikimapia and use the “historical layer / disappered object” setting.

… also, it was never Theatair. Theatair X is on Highway 31E and was originally the Twin Drive-In.

You are correct about is was never the Theatair. I have been on Wikimapia also. But still learning it. So was the Lakewood DI located at?

The more recent aerial that’s posted here has the streets of Foxboro showing. It was just north of the location given. It’s the “ball diamond” shape bordered by Savannah & Gander Drives.

The local GIS doesn’t give street addresses for the Pike in that area. Google gives that location as between 2640 & 2760 Charlestown Pike. That’s as close as I can get. (and Google isn’t that reliable) All of the ads from that period just give a general location and then a “follow the signs”.

You are correct is north of the location given. The reason why I use cross streets is because Google Maps are off some, sometimes by alot. It is close enough for the purpose of identifying the location of the drive-in.

So then it should be Charlestown Pike (historically Charlestown – New Albany Pike) & Savannah Drive.

No … strike that in parenthesis. Just Charlestown Pike.
