Tri-Way Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Tri-Way Drive-In opened in 1953 as a single screen. Tri-Way was the theater’s original name; its name comes not from its later-three screens, but rather from its location near three highways (US Routes 30, 31, and 6). The first film that played at the Tri-Way was “Has Anyone Seen My Gal” starring Piper Laurie.

Today, the Tri-Way Drive-In is only one of only a handful of outdoor theaters still in operation in Indiana. It can accomodate over 500 cars, has a playground, and features vintage intermission trailers, such as the “dancing hotdogs”. The Tri-Way’s season runs from April-September. A fourth screen was added in 2013.

This is a fantastic Drive-In theatre for people in the South Bend area. Spent many a happy night here with friends. They always seem to get a good selection of movies.

Now has 4 screens. Terrible policies. Give drive-ins a bad name! Must purchase $8 permit to bring own food in – $16 charge if caught. Cannot share food with other cars. Nasty “Policy Strictly Enforced” on wed site with mention of Security Guards at entrance. No photographing allowed. This is NOT what drive-ins are about – or ever were!

The Tri-Way Drive-In has a fund raiser underway to raise funds to convert to digital projection. It is listed on their website.
