BTW this location is NOT in Cleveland proper folks! The address is incorrect.

NOW Amazon Distribution Center @ 10575 Memphis Ave, Brooklyn, OH 44144..

On today’s Google maps, you can actually see the outline of the original D/I from 1954 in front of the property.

Please update.

The entry for Cleveland architect Charles C. Colman in the 1956 edition of the AIA’s American Architects Directory lists the Memphis Drive-In as one of his projects from 1954.

On a side note. The Flea Market that was held there has moved to the county fairgrounds in Berea.

View link (Plain Dealer) article…American Greetings, which has its world headquarters next door, has bought the Memphis Drive-In.

The Memphis Drive-In closed permanently as of 10/1/06. I read on the Sun Newspapers web site (Brooklyn Sun Journal) that the property was sold.

The Memphis Drive In might be closing at the end of this season, due to a deal being made to possibly sell the land for a “furniture warehouse” operation. However, a final decision regarding the sale of the land where the Memphis Drive-In stands won’t be made until September, so there may still be hope that the Cleveland area’s last drive-in survives, should this land sale fall through. The Memphis is in a landlocked area, surrounded by other industrial buildings and a creek…there is too little land to construct an average retail, industrial, or warehouse operation, so there is a possibility that this land sale deal will fall through, and that the drive-in survives beyond this season.
