Opened on 4/5/1949 with “The fighting O'Flynn”. Closed in 1963. The screen caught fire while being demolished, due to a cutting torch being use to demolished the screen(sparks set the building under the screen tower on fire). The site is now a Chatham Super Market and E.J. Korvette, McCrory Variety store and Revco Drugstore.

The Town Drive-In was designed by architect Ted Rogvoy, according to an item in Boxoffice, February 25, 1950. The article is illustrated by a small rendering.

The location of this theater, by the way, is Redford, not Redrod.
