The Parkside Drive-In opened on April 27, 1949 as a single-screen outdoor cinema. In 1979, the Parkside was expanded into a twin drive-in.
In 1987, operation of the drive-in changed and the Parkside was renamed "Sundance Kid" as part of a marketing ploy by the corporate owners of the Butch Cassidy Drive-In on Woodville Road, and the Jesse James Drive-In on Reynolds Road. For 35 years, the Sundance Kid played host to countless guests and created many unforgettable memories. It also sadly became Northwest Ohio's last historical drive-in during its time.
With the land for sale and its closing inevitable, the nonprofit Save Our Screen, was created with the purpose of preserving the drive-in. And we're happy to report that because of the overwhelming love and support we received from our community, the Parkside Drive-In will return in Spring 2023!
