A new page has been created for the Clinton Drive-In.

The Grand Opening ad in the photo section said the Clinton was 1¼ miles north of Clinton on Highway 63. The Boxoffice note I just posted said the Breeze-Way was 3½ miles north on Highway 63. Both are accurate. The Clinton did not become the Breeze-Way.

HistoricAerials shows the Clinton in 1949 at 2801 N Main St., and still there in 1953 and 1955. All three times, the future Breeze-Way site is undeveloped. In the 1962 aerial, there’s nothing left of the Clinton; it looks just like the gravel supply it is now. But the Breeze-Way is there in 1962, further north on the same highway. The Breeze-Way was still outlined in a 1987 topo map, but the screen was gone by a 1992 photo.

Boxoffice, July 28, 1956: “CLINTON, IND. – Gene Marietta and Gene Hathaway have opened their new Breeze-Way Drive-In Theatre, three and a half miles north on Highway 63.”

Found it!

The address (at least according to Google) is 11226 Indiana 63, Clinton, IN. The drive-in appears to have been demolished in the late 1980s/early 1990s. You can still see the ramps and outline fairly clearly. http://tinyurl.com/jaczk4g
