Previous Names: Cairo Drive-In, El Patio Drive-In
The Cairo Drive-In had a ‘soft’ opening on June 17, 1949 and officially opened on July 9, 1949. During the early-1950’s it was known as the El Patio Drive-In, the huge screen tower was designed with a Spanish theme as the name might indicate. This good-sized theater originally offered pony rides for children and also had a snack bar and modern-looking marquee. It was located off Route 51, for which it was later renamed by 1955.
The 51 Drive-In had closed by 1982 and has since been torn down. Almost nothing remains on the site today to indicate an outdoor theater ever stood there.
