The Mt. Healthy Park-In opened in 1948 with “April Showers”, starring Jack Carson and Ann Southern. It chugged along for about 40 years until finally buckling in the late-1980’s-early-1990’s. It was purchased by the city of Mt. Healthy and demolished in about 1993. The Mt. Healthy commerce park now occupies the site.

Was a cinder block drive in theatre in Mt Healthy, Ohio. They used to run Dawn to Dusk movies when I was in high school (early 80’s). My grandfather Harry H Shafer built the theatre. I have a key chain which says “The Park-IN Theatre, Mt Healthy, Ohio, The Auto Theatre of Tomorrow”, apparently the keys go to the gate and the snack bar.

The other Mt Healthy Drive-In was located at 6 Monroe Drive

In 1963, this drive-in was operated by Lou Wiethe. Car capacity was 575 per the motion picture almanac of that year.

On Google street view the address 1375 is nearly the same as the camera shot. the 2 driveways are about the same as the entrance-exits to the drive in. The MtH was prob tied with Wyoming for 3rd best drive-in in Cincinnati behind Jolly Roger (1) and Ferguson Hills (2). Just a great, well run neighborhood DI .

I grew up in Skyline Acres 1963-1971, this was my favorite place to see movies as a kid, they had an immense playground! I remember seeing comedies like “Munster Go Home”, “The Ghost & Mr. Chicken”, Disney films like “The Aristocats”, and war movies like “The Green Berets”. A real family-oriented Drive-In.
