June 13th, 1962 2-page grand opening ad in photo section. It was on 99th and SR 431. for the full ad

Needless to say, the homeowners living just east of the drive-in was unhappy.

Gwin Drive, Indianapolis, IN 46032 will take you right to the spot of land this ozoner sat on. Visible in the 1966 Historic Aerial.

The address above is incorrect. Gwin Dr. did not exist when this drive in was open. That street and the surrounding area was the theater itself.

The address for this theater is 9985 Westfield Blvd, Indianapolis, IN 46280. This points directly to the entrance road which is now Walden Ln.

Please update.

Opened with some colour cartoons(not named), and “The underwater city” and “The Three Stooges meet Hercules”.

The Northside Drive-In went out with style and a bang showing “American Graffiti” and having a fireworks show with 250 cars at the goodbye on August 12, 1988. It was razed just days later. The Eastridge Group had purchased the property for the Walden Pond development and, in a classy move, they sponsored “The Last Night at the Northside.” The Northside’s continuous operation appears to have ended at the end of a 30-year lease in 1982. The 41-acre location had room for 1,250 cars.
