Recent death of owner Charles"Fred"Baum on Memorial Day 2007 at age 64 has not left the Holiday Auto Theatre with a dark screen. Current co-owner Gregory Reinhold and The Holiday employees continue to operate this venue as Fred would have wished, even though Baum put the Drive -In up for sale in 2006. This is Butler County’s only remaining Drive-In which Baum had purchased in 1995. At least the theatre is open for the summer season.

This Drive in is alive and well and does great business in the Cincinnati area. 2 gentleman looking for a drive in to operate found it in a national real estate listing and purchased it. They have kept up the year round films that Mr. Baum did and sometimes have retro weekends and special horror or other theme films all through the night. They are commited to keeping the place going. It is very family oriented as well.
