It appears that the theater opened in 1954. A 1953 aerial shows that the theater hasn’t been built yet.

Joe Osborne, former owner and operator of the Lycinda Drive-In Theatre and Joe’s Lycinda grocery at Viper, died at the age of 80 on March 28, 1995, based on a short obituary the next day in the Lexington Herald-Leader. Joe Lycinda True Value hardware in Viper still exists today.

As for the drive-in, looks like it opened in the summer of 1955.
