The entry for Cleveland architect Charles C. Colman in the 1956 edition of the AIA’s American Architects Directory lists the Memphis Drive-In as one of his projects from 1954.

On a side note. The Flea Market that was held there has moved to the county fairgrounds in Berea.

The Memphis Drive-In closed permanently as of 10/1/06. I read on the Sun Newspapers web site (Brooklyn Sun Journal) that the property was sold.

The Memphis Drive In might be closing at the end of this season, due to a deal being made to possibly sell the land for a “furniture warehouse” operation. However, a final decision regarding the sale of the land where the Memphis Drive-In stands won’t be made until September, so there may still be hope that the Cleveland area’s last drive-in survives, should this land sale fall through. The Memphis is in a landlocked area, surrounded by other industrial buildings and a creek…there is too little land to construct an average retail, industrial, or warehouse operation, so there is a possibility that this land sale deal will fall through, and that the drive-in survives beyond this season.
