Notes: The Plymouth Drive-In was opened on August 11, 1953, screening the 1952 adventure/drama “Lure of the Wilderness” with Jean Peters, Jeffery Hunter and Constance Smith. The second feature was the 1951 sci-fi “Flight to Mars” with Marguerite Chapman, Cameron Mitchell and Arthur Franz. The Plymouth Drive-In was opened by Ed Ramsey with a car capacity of 400 cars in 1953, which in 1955 was expanded to 450 cars. Ramsey who was a well known showman in the area also opened the Plymouth Indoor Theatre in 1933. The theatre building is still standing and is used as a laundry mat now. Mr. Ramsey, between the years of 1934 to 1952 would travel around to the various local towns and screen outdoor movies for free, using a projector and equipment mounted on the back of a truck. The shows were sponsored by the local town merchants. The Bucyrus Outdoor Theatre Corp. took over the operation/ownership of the Plymouth Drive-In from Ramsey in June of 1974. During this time frame Ramsey got into some legal trouble and I believe that is why he transferred ownership to the Olen Martin Jr (dba Bucyrus Outdoor Theatre Corp.). Martin was operating the Tri-City Drive-In in Bucyrus also at this time. Martin operated the Plymouth Drive-In until the end of the 1981 season when it closed for good. The property was transferred back to the Ramsey family. In 1994 after Lois Ramsey’s death it was sold to Dalton Schaaf and used as an auto salvage yard.
