The Starlight Drive-In opened May 6, 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 1930’s Flash Gordon movie set. The drive-in’s name was spelled out in enormous illuminated letters.
In the mid-1970’s, 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 Theatres chain for the majority of its time in operation.
The Starlight Drive-In closed October 14, 1984, when the property was sold to a developer, and a medical building was built on the site.
