Miracle Twin DI in Burton MI being torn down while the nearby US 23 DI announced April 6 for its season opening
BURTON, MI — Demolition is underway on the Miracle Twin Drive-in Theatre which first opened in 1973 and closed permanently after Labor Day of 2008. The drive-in was operated by National Amusements and was among the last National Amusements drive-ins to close permanently along with the Kenwood Drive-in. This leaves the Flint, MI area with only the US 23 Drive-in Theatre which will open for the season on April 6.
