The Campus Drive-In was built in 1948, opening on August 18, 1948 with Dan Dailey in “Give My Regards to Broadway” & Richard Dix in “The Kansan”. It had a capacity for 900 cars. This drive-in closed on February 6, 1983 with Jim Henson in “The Dark Crystal” & Steve Bulen in Dragon Slayer" and was demolished. A shopping center was built on its former site.
One of the most memorable features of this drive-in was the 46 foot high drum majorette outlined in neon lights that twirled a baton. Today the neon lighted drum majorette is “alive and well” and resides at the College Grove Shopping Center which replaced this drive-in.
