The Starlight opened in 1950, and originally had space for 400 cars. The original screen tower was huge, and very futuristic-looking for its day, like something out of a 30s Flash Gordon movie set. The drive-in’s name was spelled out in enormous illuminated letters.
In the mid-70s, a second screen was added and parking was increased to 960. (Soon afterward, this was reduced to about 800 when a playground was built under the original screen). The theater was part of the BAC Theaters chain for the majority of its time in operation.
The Starlight closed in 1984, when the property was sold to a developer, and a medical building was built on the site.
