The Outdoor Drive-In is located in the town of Burlington, but the address was listed from the outskirts of South Point. Its grand opening date has not been found yet, but it opened around 1949. By 1952 it had been renamed Auto-In and was operated by W.E. Mcoy.

It was closed for the final time in the early-1960’s following the construction of the Ohio River Scenic Byway, which took a few traces away from the drive-in. The screen was removed a short time later and was demolished.

A 1952 aerial shows the drive-in present at the location, but no projection booth/concession stand. It might be a bad photograph, but the screen is clearly shown. A 1954 aerial does show the projection booth/concession stand. So, you got me.

A 1959 aerial shows the construction of the Ohio River Scenic Byway. And while the highway is close, it doesn’t appear to have removed any of the ramps.

A 1967 aerial shows the screen demolished. By 1983, all traces of the drive-in had been removed.

I believe that the theater first went under the name “Super 52 Drive-In”.
