This was a very popular drive-in, the only double drive-in in the Greater Cincinnati area. The screen tower was centrally placed and had a screen on each side. The screens were named Reading Road West theatre which held 950 cars and Ross Avenue East theatre which held 850 cars. Each had their own separate entrances, exits, box offices, concession stands and projection booths. It opened in May 26, 1949 with Betty Grable & Dan Dailey in “When My Baby Smiles At Me”. There was seating provided for 800 walk-in patrons.
Closed in the early-1980’s, after being torn down, it served as a car park lot for a while.
In 1987, National Amusements built the 12-screen Showcase Cinemas Cincinnati complex on the land. It too has now been demolished.
