Louisville, KY: Group Hopes for Landmark Status for Kenwood Drive-In

Posted on Friday, August 5th, 2011 4:32 PM by Scott Jentsch

WFPL News is reporting that the Iroquois Civic Club and Neighborhood Association is applying for landmark status for the Kenwood Drive-In in Louisville, Kentucky:

The Metro Historic Landmarks and Preservation District Commission will consider the application at its August 18th meeting.

The designation would require the drive-in’s owner to seek the commission’s approval before altering or tearing down structures on the property.

City preservation officer Richard Jett says there are no other drive-ins left standing in Louisville.

“Ultimately, there were nine such drive-ins, but this is the last one in Jefferson County. There’s one (nearby) in Indiana, but this is the last one,” he said.

To find out more about the theater and why the group is trying to get it declared a landmark, take a look at the Metro Historic Landmarks and Preservation District Commission’s Kenwood Drive-In Designation Report. The photo above appears in that report.

The Kenwood Drive-In was opened in 1949 and was closed by then-owner National Amusements in January 2009. The closest operating drive-in is the Georgetown Drive-In Theatre in Georgetown, Indiana, about 14 miles away.
