About
Embark on a nostalgic journey to the timeless charm of the oldest Drive-In Theatre in Ohio, where the grandeur of cinema meets the great outdoors. Imagine an evening where the stars in the sky compete with those on the screen, a place where you can revel in the magic of movies from the comfort of your vehicle. Welcome to an iconic destination at the heart of Ohio, a stone's throw from the crossroads of State Routes 21 and 250, just northwest of Strasburga haven for RV camping enthusiasts and movie lovers alike. Since its inception in 1937, this historic venue has been a beacon for families and friends looking for a unique cinematic experience, a mantra of "Come as you are in the family car" guiding its ethos. With its roots deeply embedded in the community, it stands as the second oldest continuously operating Drive-In Theatre in the world, a testament to its enduring appeal and commitment to the cinematic arts. Step back in time and immerse yourself in a venue enriched with history, originally opening its doors as BOYER'S AUTO THEATRE. Although the Restaurant, Gas Station, Arcade, and Golf Range that once graced its grounds have since closed, the theatre has evolved, embracing technology and innovation while retaining its classic charm. Marvel at first-run movies in HD Stereo sound, thanks to state-of-the-art digital projectors, servers, and sound processors in both of its twin screens, a feat achieved through its recent digital conversion efforts. The traditional Speaker Post Sound System, once a hallmark of drive-in theatres, has been complemented with Stereo Audio Soundheads and Digital Dolby FM Stereo Transmitters to heighten your cinematic experience, allowing you to tune in through your vehicle's radio. Not forgetting its roots, the theatre boasts a "Classic Mammoth Retro Neon Marquee," a nod to the golden age of cinema, coupled with a fully remodeled concession stand and classic video arcade, ensuring your visit is not just about the movie but an experience to remember. The grassy parking area adds an extra layer of charm, providing a soft bed for those opting for an RV camping night under the stars. This family-owned gem, passed down through four generations, has witnessed the evolution of the drive-in theatre industry, from its humble beginnings to a modern-day entertainment venue. The commitment to quality and continuity ensures that every visit is a blend of nostalgia and contemporary convenience. Whether rain or shine, warm or cool, the allure of Hollywood's newest movies awaits. Bring your family, your friends, or simply come alone with your RV to experience the stars under the stars. In a world where the pace of life gets ever faster, take a moment to slow down and savor a piece of cinematic history that promises an unforgettable night out.
