The drive-in is no longer there. A storage facility has been built on the property. Check out the photo section.

I remember going to this place a lot back in the mid to late 1990’s when I just happened to get a rare Friday or Saturday night off. Saw many movies here. Having the sound in stereo over FM was great too. I used to take both my generic Walkman and a radio headset so I didn’t have to worry about running my car battery down. Still miss it.

Someone is definitely looking after this site, the grass was mowed in the most recent Google Earth image. There does appear to be some damage to the screen but overall it still looks in good shape.

Probably could afford to switch to digital.

This appears to be in nice condition!! Judging by this, what appears to be, a 2016 video! Even the snack bar has a glass encasement with displays of die cast cars, etc. still there.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXhShVjB-x8

Drove past and stopped to look in the gate on May 24 2015. The Midtown is closed, but all the buildings are standing, appear in good condition, the paint looks crisp, even the grass is mowed. Just no one around. Nothing on the marquee.

According to the Blue Moon Theatres website this is definately closed.

I also sent Mike McCarthy an email about this Drive-In and with the hope that the citizens of Roane County will and continue to support their Drive-In. There aren’t many left these days! So if you wish to write him perhaps he’ll forward all of our thoughts and concerns to the Mid-Town owners so they know there are folks out there who do care. Mike’s email address is

I just read the story and viewed the TV video by Mike McCarthy about this Drive-In that could be closed, again. I hope the citizens of Roane County TN can and will support this fading American icon for when they are gone they are gone forever!
