Previous Names: Family Drive-In, McCollum's Outdoor Theater
Opened on September 6, 1950 with Charles Bickford in “Guilty of Treason”. The Family Drive-In was located along Highway 54 East and could accommodate over 450 cars. It was later renamed McCollum’s Outdoor Theater and in 1953 was renamed Clinton Outdoor Theater.
It closed in the early-1990’s, and in 1996, its screen was removed and installed at the Harvest Moon Drive-In in nearby Gibson City as its second screen. In a way, the Clinton Outdoor Theater still lives on at the still-going-strong Harvest Moon Drive-In.
The concession booth and marquee still survive, used by an auction service which operated on the former drive-in site.
