I was very familiar with this drive in, not because I went there, but because my Grandmother lived in Garfield Heights, just up Warner road off of Garfield Boulevard. Back then, Interstate 77 ended at Rockside Road and there was no I-480. You had to take regular roads from that point, roads that ALWAYS went right by the Cloverleaf. I do remember seeing some interesting titles on the Marquee that involved Nurses at one time. I do not recall actually ever seeing anything on the screen, I think my parents took the long way around when going home.

Thank Goodness the Big Boy is still accross the street!. Remember the back of the screen was a huge clock with Coke Bottles for hands?
My fondest memory was seeing “Night of the Living Dead” with a date and my 11-year-old sister in the back seat—turning around and grabbing and nibbling her arm at just the right moment during that film. I’m sure she remembers, though perhaps not so fondly!

Columbus still has a Free Christian Drive-In. It has been running for at least 35 summers, and is a unique operation that deserves its own entry here.
