I have many fond memories of this Drive-In theater. It was a real gem. Sorely missed. Wish I had a decent photo of the place. Would even purchase one.

My Dad was the projectionist there for years. I miss going with him on Saturdays to fix speakers

It’s not a housing development but a commercial strip center. Several units for sale:

Interesting that the housing development kept the Gala Name.

It did park 475 cars and it was owned in the late 50’s by OHIO THEATRE SERVICE.
