Originally operated by the Butterfield circuit, the Denniston was later run by Deniston Theatre Company. The Denniston Drive-In is now located behind the Denniston 1&2 Cinemas and is so overgrown that hiking boots and denim pants are required to make the trip to the concession stand, which you can't see until you get there.

After gradually falling apart over the years, the remains were demolished in 2018 and the Memory Lane Drive-In was constructed on the site, opening in 2021.
