The Bel-Air Facebook page says the place opened in 1952, and I believe it! For some reason, the oldest reference books kept wanting to place it in Osgood, almost 4 miles away, instead of Versailles, less than half that distance. Here’s my data dump from the Theatre Catalogs and Motion Picture Almanacs:

TC 1952: Bel Air D. I. in Versailles. Exec: Paul Kelly. Cap. 250.

MPA 1953-54: Bellaire in Osgood. Carl Rief, 250.

TC 1955-56: Bel Air in Osgood. Paul Kelly, 250.

MPA 1959: Bellaire in Osgood. Carl Rief, 250.

MPA 1963: Bellaire in Osgood. Russell Kelly, 250.

MPA 1969-76: Bel-Air in Versailles, 300.

MPA 1982: Bel Air in Versailles, J. Holokan, 300.

MPA 1984: Bel Air in Versailles, Chorpenning.

MPA 1986-88: not listed.

A closer address (at least for the Google Map) is U.S. 421 and W Hopewell Rd, Versailles, IN. This location is just to the south of the drive-in which sits on the west side of US 421. The previous address kept placing the Google Map in the center of Versailles.
