Originally opened by Bailey Theatres in the late-1950’s or early-1960’s as the Sunrise Drive-In, catering for an African-American audience. The Thunderbird Drive-In opened on November 27, 1963 with Jack Lemmon in “Irma la Deuce” & Frank Sinatra in “The Manchurian Candidate”. On July 13, 1973 it expanded to three screens. This is not your average drive-in theater. This drive-in, located on 88 acres of property now has 14 movie screens, a flea market, a circus, amusement rides, and a video arcade. It is open 365 days a year.
On April 4, 2022 screen 5 was destroyed by fire. The Swap Shop Drive-In was closed for renovations by December 2022.
