The Round Hill Drive-In was the only drive-in theater actually in the city. It was opened on August 8, 1951, in the Round Hill section of Springfield’s North End and was very popular for city residents. Operated by Joseph E. Levine & Daytz Theatres, the theatre could accommodate 800 cars and had a walk-in seating area for 300 patrons. The screen was 75 feet x 78 feet, in front of which was a small children’s playground.
The construction of I-91 caused it to be razed at the end of summer, 1966. I-91 now goes past the small knoll where the screen once stood.
