On April 15, 1967, construction of the 27 Drive-In led into a halt following a civil action lawsuit was filed by Pulaski Circuit Court asking for a permanent injunction of the theater’s construction as well as various hazardous signs and the disruption of the original people who lived in the area. Mr. and Mrs. Earl Claunch and Cora Hudson owned the property of the theater at the time, and operated by brothers O.G. and Harry Roaden. Construction would later resume shortly afterward, and the theater would open its gates in the middle of 1967 despite the lawsuits.

However, shortly after opening, Circuit Judge R.C. Tartar refused to declare the 27 Drive-In a private nuisance and rejected a demand by nearby property owners for permanent injunctions and an estimate $39,800 in damages on October 23, 1967. During the ruling, Tartar knew that operating a theater was legal, but the Highway 27 development for a theater establishment represented an investment of $70,000.
