Tiffin, Ohio — The Tiffin Drive-In Theater, located at 4101 SR 53, is will host a grand reopening event on Thursday, Oct. 15.
Following the completion of two brand new screens, the Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
Guests will be asked to follow COVID-19 safety protocols by wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
The first movie to be aired on the new screen is Raiders of the Lost Ark – Indiana Jones on Thursday.
Dead Shark Productions documented the construction process and will debut a short documentary before the movie.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with showtime at 7:30 p.m.
Tiffin Drive-In Theater was recently purchased by Mike Cole, a freelance writer and entrepreneur from Findlay.
Two new screens have been built: an 84-foot-wide screen to replace the original screen, built when the drive-in was first opened, and a second, permanent 44-foot-wide screen.
To build the screens, Tiffin Drive-In Theater contracted with Selby Products of Ritchfield, Ohio, which has constructed more than 2,000 drive-in movie screens throughout the world.
Cole said he and his wife were inspired to open a drive-in theater after visiting others. “We are excited to bring the Tiffin Drive-In Theater into the next era and help it to continue to be a unique attraction in Seneca County for many years to come.”
