Gypsy Drive-In

This theater is remarkable for its very large screen. It had room for 400 cars, opening in 1948 by A.E. Campbell Ct. By 1955 it was operated by Ornstein Ct. & Mrs Roy Hahn. It closed in 1985. The screen still stands, but the grounds are used for storage.

This drive in is located on Louisville Road between Walnut Creek and Olde Towne Roads. There is now a large building on the property next to the screen.

A closer address is 4991 Old Louisville Rd, Bardstown, KY.

Google Maps has updated their addresses and this puts it right on the property.

The old screen is standing. There appears to be some framework indicated a widescreen had been placed on the frontside, but now it is basically gone. The projection booth/concession stand is also just a shell of its former self.

The large building on the south side of the property barely gets into the ramps. So, it’s possible that the drive-in could be restored. However, it would take some work.
