This drive-in opened in July 1949, and could accomodate 650 cars. The 44 Outdoor Theatre closed in September 1984, and was soon demolished. A Wal-Mart was later built on the site (since demolished).

The Google map is wrong. The theater was on Southpark.

The above address is incorrect.

Address should be 1790 W South Park Ave.

The other address is where the drive-in stood when in operation. South Koeller ended just north at W 20 Ave.

And in a twist of fate, the two major businesses that built on the site are no longer. The Walmart spoken of in the description has been torn down. The JCPenney that came later now sits closed and abandoned. Except for a lonely shoe store, one could build a drive-in theatre here once again!

Originally it was a 650 car drive-in theatre. In 1953 it was bought by Marcus Corporation. Their improvements included a tower and concession building. They may have had those before, but they built new ones.
