The August 29, 1947, issue of The Press-Gazette from Hillsboro, Ohio, carried a full page ad announcing the grand opening of the Roselawn Auto Theatre the following night. The house was operated by Associated Theatres, of Lynchburg, Ohio.

Found It!

The address (according to Google) is 3075 U.S. 50, Hillsboro, OH. Today, Corky’s Truck & Equipment sits on the property with very little indication of the drive-in remaining.
