TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Seeing a movie on the big screen could have a whole new...and classic meaning.

That's because a drive-in theater is in the works for Terre Haute's north-side.

KJB Theaters plans to build the drive-in near Parke Avenue and Lafayette Avenue.

Years back, there was a drive-in theater at this same location.

Owners are currently fine-tuning some of the details, including parking and a new building.

They hope to have it complete by May of 2018.

KJB Theaters also owns properties in Linton, Bloomington, and Paris, Illinois.
