The Warrington family who built,owned and operated this drive-in until Lou`s death in 2009,have sold it. Theater Group has leased it since 2009 and now owns it. They are going to keep as a drive-in,they have installed digital projectors and plan to remodel the bathrooms.

I heard a couple months ago that this great drive in is closing this summer because of the owners death. I wish somebody would buy this amazing establishment. I have spent much of my summers at this drive in. I am so sad that it is closing.

It was originally a single screen drive in. The second 38 x 76 screen was assembled in 1986 using parts from a dismanted drive in screen tower, which originally measured 60 x 120, fabricated by Selby Industries. The original wood screen tower was destroyed in a 1997 arson fire and was replaced that year with the remaining parts from the aforementioned screen tower. As a result of the fire, a planned third screen will not be built.

1/6/2003 - Cinema Treasures
The U. S. 23 Twin Drive-In Theatre was designed by Frank Boomer and was never part of a theater chain. It has been primarily owned by the Warrington family from day one. Its capacity between the two screens is 1,500 cars.
