The Tri-State Drive-In opened in mid-June 1959 to serve the tri-state area of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio. The drive-in was featured in the March 7, 1960 issue of BoxOffice.
The Tri-State Drive-In wired speakers to the eight houses overlooking the screen. Its boxoffice floor was 18 inches below ground level so the cashier would be at eye level with cars' occupants. The drive-in could hold 800 cars and cost $190,000 to build. Its color scheme was aquamarine, and its yellow and blue marquee was topped by a triangle.
The 1961 Motion Picture Almanac said the Tri-State Drive-In was owned by Louis Marcks.
