It was the only theatre, Located in the heart of the Guyan Valley of West Virginia. By 1953 it had been renamed Guyan Drive-In with Mrs D. Brown as the sole operator.

The Guyan Drive-In not only hosted movies but it is reported that it hosted music events in the 1950’s including Porter Waggoner and Flatt & Scruggs.

A 1971 aerial shows the screen to be gone, so it doesn’t appear that the drive-in made it to the end of its lease.

Today, the property has not been developed. It appears to be a storage area for gas or propane equipment. There is no trace of the drive-in remaining.
