Loco Drive-In Will Connect Loudon County, Tennessee, Community with Year-Round Entertainment

Sporting Events, movies, concerts and more expected at new age drive-in theater

Loudon Entertainment LLC, in conjunction with The Whitener Company LLC, announces the launch of a new age drive-in theater experience to be built in Loudon, Tennessee, in the near future. Located off of Interstate I-75 on Highway 72 in Eastern Tennessee, The LoCo Drive-In™ will feature LoCo Tron™, the latest videoboard LED technology with day and nighttime capabilities. The LoCo Tron™ will be 35-feet by 63-feet. The modern era drive-in plans to present movies, sporting events, concerts and more, catering to all ages and demographics while connecting local area communities.

Planned for a mid-summer opening, The LoCo will host year-round movies and events, beginning with movie selections Thursday through Sunday evenings. Audio capabilities will be delivered through a local FM station, easily accessible through a guest’s car radio, while also providing other options. Gordon Whitener, CEO of The Whitener Company, adds, “We are very excited to bring this new entertainment concept to the area, and we want to thank Ty Ross and the City of Loudon, Jack Qualls of the Loudon County Economic Development Agency, and Loudon County Commission, for their guidance and support.”

The communities of Loudon, Lenoir City, Sweetwater, Farragut, Knoxville and Oak Ridge, all within a 25-mile radius, represent the initial target audience, as well as other nearby rural areas. Food, general concessions and merchandising will utilize and benefit local business partners. A gated and turfed professional playground on-site will also be available for use by paid guests and their families.

Loudon Entertainment LLC is a recent launch of The Whitener Company, located in Knoxville, Tennessee. For more information about the company and The LoCo Drive-In, contact Loudon Entertainment’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, Jacob Nelson, at, or visit
