1 person favorited this theater
The Sundown Cruise-In opened in the summer of 1950 on the east side of Old Springfield Pike just north of Oldtown Creek. The October 13, 1951 issue of the Motion Picture Herald reported that the Jackson Theatre Company had taken over the “defunct” Sundown Cruise-In and renamed it the Old Town Drive-In.
The Motion Picture Almanac showed Jerry Jackson as the owner through its 1954 edition, then Mark Cummins (1955-57), Kip Smiley (1958-59), and the pair of M. Straus and Frank Weitzel (1960-62). In the 1963 edition, Chakeres Theatres had taken over the newly renamed North Xenia Drive-In, and that’s how it stayed through the final MPA drive-in list in 1988 (although the theatre closed in 1985). Historic Aerials shows the North Xenia Drive-In still indicated on its 1995 topo map.
