The June 24, 1950 issue of BoxOffice wrote that the Martinsville was the last of three local drive-ins that all opened during May 1950, after the “Center Brook” and the Templeton Wheel-In, 10 miles north.

“Costing approximately $60,000, (the Martinsville) provided not only 300 car speakers but also benches for 200 non-car owners. The Martinsville Drive-In charges 40 cents for patrons in cars and 25 cents for walk-in customers.”

Actually, according to the Martinsville Reporter-Times, the Martinsville Drive-In didn’t open until 2 days later. It opened on May 19, 1950 with “The Great Dan Patch” and “Here Comes Trouble” (unknown if short subjects were added due to blurriness).
