Ypsi-Ann Drive-In

The first Ann Arbor area drive-in theater, the Ypsi-Ann Drive-In was so named because it was built in a then rural area between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. It opened on May 29, 1948 with Roy Rogers in “Springtime in the Sierras”. It was built at a cost of more than $100,000. The Ypsi-Ann Drive-In was originally was run by Arthur and Roger Robinson, who also operated the Scio Drive-In and Willow Drive-In. General Cinemas acquired the Ypsi-Ann Drive-In, Willow Drive-In and Scio Drive-In in 1967.

The Ypsi-Ann Drive-In was torn down in 1978 and a store was built on the site.
