The Holiday Drive-In opened June 5, 1955 with Frank Sinatra in “Suddenly” and Rory Calhoun in “A Bullet is Waiting”. Originally a single screen ozoner, it was later twinned and then four screened. It could accomodate 1,200 cars. This was the flagship of the Mid-America Theatres as far as drive-ins were concerned. This also had the office complex that housed the offices for the Mid-America Theatres.
Most notable of the Holiday Drive-In was the huge marquee that sat at Page Boulevard with the large neon lettering spelling out Holiday. It had stars and rockets moving all over the marquee in neon. The marquee lit up Page all around the main entrancce to the drive-in. About the time that Mid-America went out of business and sold their theatres to AMC the drive-ins were on their way out and the Holiday Drive-In closed.
An office complex has been built on the site of the drive-in.
