I agree with jwmovies. The address listed is incorrect and is not in Clarksburg. It was listed that way back in the 50s and 60s. In fact, Chenoweth Drive in Bridgeport occupies the site of the drive-in. I saw Star Wars during its first run here.

The Nov. 22, 1952 issue of Boxoffice included a photo of the Ellis with the words “Celebrating our first anniversary” on its marquee, suggesting a 1951 opening date.
