Adjacent to the Dixie Gardens Ice Bowl skating rink, this drive-in was a quick drive across the bridge from Cincinnati on the I-71, not too far from the Erlanger Showcase Cinemas. Oftentimes, the screen was viewable from the highway, which probably caused many traffic accidents when nosy drivers or passengers caught a glimpse of the occasional racy flick.
The Dixie Gardens Drive-In was opened July 3, 1947 with June Haver in “Three Little Girls in Blue”, with a capacity for 750 cars. It was designed by the architectural firm F & Y Building Service in a Southern Colonial style. It was demolished in 1988.
