The Northside Drive-In was opened on May 26, 1950 with John Wayne in “Tycoon” & Terry Moore in “Mighty Joe Young”. The 1952 Theatre Catalog included the Northside Drive-In, capacity 400, owner Lee Th. Co.
The Motion Picture Almanac also listed the Northside Drive-In, capacity 350, through its final appearance in the 1965 edition. By the 1969 aerial photo, the screen was down though the ramp area was undeveloped.
Based on a note in the July 22, 1950 issue of BoxOffice, that was its first year. It reported that the “North Side” recently opened one block away from the greyhound track. The note said the drive-in could hold 400 cars. It was closed at the end of the 1961 season.
Nothing remains of the Northside Drive-In today; mobile home parks occupy the site.
