The Harvest Moon Drive-In opened in the summer of 1954, which parking for around 300 cars. In 1965, the theater was heavily damaged by a tornado, but was repaired and reopened the next year. Due to declining attendance, the Harvest Moon Drive-In was closed in 1978, but reopened by a new owner two years later.
A storm in 1981 once again inflicted heavy damage to the drive-in, but this time, it wasn’t reopened for nearly eight more years, again by new owners. In 1996, the screen from the Clinton Drive-In was moved to the Harvest Moon, after that nearby drive-in was closed, and the Harvest Moon became a twin.
The drive-in’s season runs from April-September, and it screens first-run features. The Harvest Moon Twin Drive-In also hosts car shows and fireworks displays.
