Previous Names: 41 Outdoor Theatre
Opened July 1, 1948 with Joel McRea in “Four Faces West”. As the single screen the 41 Outdoor Theatre had a capacity for 1,000 cars. A year later it was twinned and became to 41 Twin Outdoor Theatre with another 1,000-car capacity. The "Twin" moniker was kept even after 2 new screens were added. The facility featured an ornate neon sign and drive-in screens.
The 41 Twin Outdoor closed in September of 2001. The large drive-in was still a thriving business, but sat on land that had become exceedingly valuable over the years. Demolition began in April 2002 as crews began clearing the way for a new office park for the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company.
The concession stand caught on fire during its demolition. That’s insult to injury.
