I’ve looked at every map I could find, and I can’t find 1 that has that road labeled.
Yep, Dean is still around.
If you look at that area with Google Maps (or any other for that matter) many of the outlying roads have no labels at all, including the one the drive-in was on.
Not apparent at all in this shot HERE but a 1996 shows the faint, faint outline of the rows, and likely a booth right in the center of the field HERE
No shopping center show in Google Maps, but the place sure looks run over with vegetation!
Take the 2 links I posted and it shows that the Hauber became Saenger sometime late in 1920. Burned in 1922, when Hauber no longer owned it, and was rebuilt by Saenger. Granted, it doesn’t say where or how much it was rebuilt. Since the rebuilding had an architect Emile Weil, I am going to assume from the ground up.
Cost for rebuild was estimated at $30,000 before the fire, then was finally rebuilt after the fire at a cost of $200,000. From reading the articles, it burned while in the process of rebuilding or remodeling.
Google is goofy. 124 S. Main St. still takes you to the 101 end of S. Main instead of towards Chocktaw St.
Are you talking about this place HERE? About a block away? Eubanks next door is listed at 118 Main St.
The 2nd link I posted says Hauber sold to Bohlinger Amusements in 1920, then 2 months later sold to Saenger. So it appears to already have been Saenger when it burned in 1922. Very possible a 1922 building on the same lot, but it doesn’t mentioned the building was razed.
Way South on Hwy 6…..
2nd paragraph here says the same thing….
And here too….
2 small pictures HERE
A quick link on Hauber….
The pictures says the Gem / Miller / Strand was at E. 2nd and State St. Nothing is there at that corner any longer except some empty lots or new construction.
The drugstore mentioned above is at 2nd St and Main. The picture linked above on 2/12/09 shows a building with vastly different windows up top.
Just down the street across from the Community Theater (207 W. 2nd) would have been the AMUSE-U Theater (208 W. 2nd St.)
A busy couple of blocks for theater back then.
LM’s first post link doesn’t work for me. The only difference I see is they took a dash out of their pbjclibrary website name.
I’m surprised the land isn’t developed for other use yet. In THIS 1994 shot, the screen still looks to be there. Looks to be gone in mid to late 90’s.
North of town, looks like the screen is even still standing.
Small glimpse of the screen in THIS shot.
Folded down position HERE
A 1995 image HERE. You can certainly see where it started as a Twin, and the 3rd screen was added to the North of the other 2 screens.
January 1995 view HERE. Looks like nothing is left at this point.
Click on the map link, zoom in a little and check out the 20,000 FEMA trailers on the West side of the airport. North on 278. Unbelievable.
Use the link below and you can see where the drive-in used to be. You can still see the curved lines in the lots behind the businesses. Corner of 62W and 126. The tiny white building looks to be part of the old drive-in….
1994 VIEW HERE
Ground features still there. How’d you like an address on Suck Creek Rd?
The drive-in was right where the large white building is now in the center of this link:
1992 imaging shows it there.
Looks like the theater is back up and running according to their website….
