I uploaded the 1965 aerial photo from USGS for it and the Decatur Drive-in.

The Outdoor Theatre opened July 28, 1950 originally with 700 spots, the sister o-zoner to the Decatur Drive-In both for the Kerasotes Theater Circuit. Opening features were “The Nevadan” and “Adventure in Baltimore.” In 1955, the theater went to a Mancovision aluminum screen to accommodate widescreen presentations including CinemaScope and to try to get a brighter image. The family-centric location had a train, ferris wheel, merry-go-round and other playground fun for the kids.
