Irv Tamler of Indianapolis opened the Moonlite Drive-In Theatre on October 17, 1948 with “Life with Father”. The capacity was 700 cars. In development stages, it was known as the East Side Drive-In. In 1972, operator John K. Patterson was arrested for showing obscene films. A tornado destroyed the Moonlight Drive-In complex on April 3, 1974. It was not rebuilt.

No trace of the drive-in remaining.

The foundations that sit behind the Country Mark are from a building that was constructed after the drive-in was demolished. That building lasted until at least 2008.

By 2010, it was gone and the present structure was put in place by 2012.
