Magic City and Midway Twin Drive-In Theaters

There are a few other drive-in movie theaters that are about 40 or so miles from Akron, but I think Ravenna is far enough! Here are the final two:

Magic City Drive-In
5602 S. Cleveland-Massillon Rd.
Barberton, OH
330-825-4333

The Magic City has a pretty detailed history on their Web page. I do want to state that although the original marquee is still standing, it no longer has the cool Aladdin-themed illustration.

Midway Twin Drive-In
2736 Ohio 59
Ravenna, OH
(330) 296-9829

The architect behind the Midway was Ohioan Jack Vogel, who was known as one of the most creative and prolific drive-in designers in the United States. Although the original screen was destroyed during a storm in 2000, the theater still features much of its original 1955 designs in the marquee and ticket booth, as you can see from the photos above.
