The Springfield Drive-In was opened in 1947. Troubled by booking issues, the Springfield Drive-In Theater Corporation filed a $1 million antitrust action against each of the major Hollywood studios.
By 1980, the Springfield Drive-In was showing XXX films in the winter months drawing negative attention in the community which may or may not be the reason that theatre was vandalized. In 1982, the theatre closed for the season, but reopened in 1983 and continued until 1988. It continued as a flea market location until being torn down in 1991.
