OLDHAM CO., Ky. (WHAS11) – The application to rezone a property, located at 5800 Old LaGrange Road in Crestwood, Ky. for a drive-in theater, was withdrawn on Sept. 29.

The developer that withdrew the application said in a letter:

“Many of you have expressed that you would support the idea of our project in a better site and I am confident that we will earn your support as we continue to investigate alternative locations.”

At a forum to discuss the possibility of the theater, earlier in September, residents had a lot of questions. The main concerns were about traffic, the construction process and the kind of crowds the theater would draw.

The property the developers were looking at is an empty field off Old La Grange Road. The property is more than 100 acres and would’ve allowed for 800 parking spaces, two big screens, concessions and restrooms.
