The first Ann Arbor area drive-in theater, the Ypsi-Ann was so named because it was built in a then rural area between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. It opened in spring of 1948 (with, appropriately, its first film being "Springtime in the Sierras") at a cost of more than $100,000. The Ypsi-Ann was originally was run by Arthur and Roger Robinson, who also operated the Scio and Willow Drive-Ins. General Cinemas acquired the Ypsi-Ann, Willow and Scio Drive-Ins in 1967. The Ypsi-Ann was torn down in 1978 and a store was built on the site.
