For The Elkton Drive-In Theatre’s 3rd Anniversary, Dusk to Dawn Shows in 1961

Moviegoers at the Elkton Drive-in were in for a grand night of dusk to dawn shows on July 3, 1961, all for an admission price of 3-cents per person.  The screenings that evening consisted of No Man is and Island, Jack the Ripper, X-15 and the Posse from Hell.

The special night, just before the nation celebrated Independence Day, was part of a big birthday bash planned by the management as the outdoor theatre celebrated its third anniversary.  The screen had flickered on for the first time in 1950, and after nearly a decade of shows, the place had been renovated and opened under new management.
