West Rome Drive-In

The West Rome Drive-in located on Route 69 opened on June 6, 1951 with Red Skelton in “Watch the Birdie” & Ben Johnson in “Wagonmaster”. It was a single screen drive-in. In 1985 a second screen was added. This drive-in has a capacity for 500 cars.

On April 10, 2014, the owners of the drive-in, Davidson Auto Group, announced that the West Rome Drive-In would not be opening for the summer 2014 season. The reason given was the cost of conversion to digital projection and poor attendances. It had been demolished by 2019.

So many drive-ins today have flea market Sundays to make financial ends meet in today’s world.
