VAIDEN, MS and GRAND BLANC, MI — Louis M. Warrington Jr., second-generation owner of the US 23 Twin Drive-in Theatre in the Flint, Michigan suburb of Mundy Township, died Wednesday, February 18 at his winter home in Vaiden, Mississippi at age 72.

He devoted a half-century of his life to this drive-in since he started working there at age 18. While he had other business interests, the drive-in was his first and favorite. A resident of Grand Blanc Township near the drive-in, he liked hunting birds during the winter months.

The Warrington family plans to reopen the drive-in for one final season in his memory and put it up for sale. Additional info from the Flint Journal.
