This drive-in is the oldest drive-in theater in Eastern Ohio, opening on May 2, 1941 with Penny Singleton in “Blondie Has Servant Trouble” along with a few short subjects.

It first opened as simply “Drive-In Theatre”. It was later renamed the LaVerne Drive-In in 1947, and finally the Howland Drive-In in 1950.
