Highland Drive In theatre in Westville planning June re-opening

The Highland Drive In is looking to re-open next month.

Owner Eric Barker purchased the Westville facility, which hasn`t been open since October of 2013, in 2014. The original facility was built and opened in the 50s. After a slight spelling change in 60s, it was rebuilt in the 70s, and before Empire purchased it in the 90s.

The motive for re-opening the facility is simple.

Barker said they are hoping to open on or around June 12, but that may change. He said renovations are underway but it’s in good shape. He said the drive in will be family oriented.
