South Drive-In (Official)
Previously operated by: Academy Operating Co.
Functions: Movies (First Run)
The South Drive-In was opened on May 11, 1950 with Roy Rogers in “Down Dakota Way” and Donald O' Connor in “Francis”. It was operated by Milton Yassenoff. By 1959 it was operated by the Academy Operating Co. chain. The last surviving drive-in in Columbus. Located on S. High Street, it’s not in an area that’s desirable for developers with a lot of empty lots and buildings around, so it may survive a few more years.
I was there this past Memorial Day 2004 to see “Shrek 2” and the place was nearly sold out. Great stereo sound through your car radio or boom box, better take one along as most of the post mounted speakers don’t work very well.
