Previous Names: Moonlite Outdoor Theatre, Chippewa Twin Drive-In
The Moonlite Outdoor Theatre opened on July 8, 1951 with Danny Kaye in “On the Riviera”. With a single screen, it was owned by L. Cochovetry. Loew’s took over operations of the drive-in in 1961. It was twinned on June 4, 1976 and renamed the Chippewa Twin Drive-In. Car Capacity for the ozoner was listed at 600 cars.
In later years (from 1984) the Chippewa Drive-In went over to screening adult XXX movies and closed around 1988. It was later demolished. The Showplace 16 was built on the site of the former Chippewa Drive-In.
