New Albany Drive-In

The Drive-In was opened July 9, 1954 when it was operated by Schuler Baird. This was a single screen theater, that sat on the hill behind the current super pets building. It was operating into the mid-1990’s.

The space is now a Home Depot and its parking lot.

Matt, in 1956 it was owned by S. Baird.

This theater operated up until the mid 1990s because I went to it a few times as a kid.

Serpico, not services.

It was there in the mid-80’s. Had the FM radio setting but still retained the speakers.

Those films “Wolf” and “Wyatt Earp” were both released in 1994, so I guess the New Albany was still there at that time

A 1992 aerial shows it still intact with screen and by 1998 it was levelled with no trace left. Probably closed between 1994 and 1998.
