What does the developer plan to build here?

The land was purchased on 2/24/2000 for almost $600,000. There are no buildings on the property, just some blacktop from 1965. Use is listed as for churches/public worship.

This theatre opened on July 14, 1950 with the films RED RIVER and EVERYBODY’S DANCIN'.

O.K. interesting looking marquee.

Google maps too far north on this one. Should be located just north of the Oakland Park/Westerville Road (Rt. 3) intersection.

Check out this music video, circa 1990, for lots of views of the Linden Air, which was abandoned but still standing at that time. I worked on this video, and we shot lots of it around the drive-in:

I still have a big red marquee letter “Z” which I picked up off the ground during the shoot.

As of 2022, the outlines of the ramps are still visible on Google Earth!

Darren is right! The entrance road next to Habitat/Mid Ohio is still there! This massive ozoner is just asleep under the foliage just waiting to reopen someday…😔😇😙
