Drive-In 54 commented about Midway Drive-In on Jul 4, 2014 at 9:54 pm

From the website:

Midway Drive-In was constructed in 1953 and has been showing movies every summer since then. It was originally owned and operated by Ernest Schweigerdt and John Kirschenman.

Ernest’s daughter, Alyce, and her husband Marvin Oligmueller purchased the drive-in in 1963. In 1968 a strong summer storm came through during the showing of a movie. The wind was so strong that it blew the screen down. The screen was rebuilt right away and movies were shown throughout the rest of the summer.

In 2004, Midway Drive-In came under new ownership and continues to offer movie-goers in central South Dakota great movies and that nostalgic “drive-in” experience. The current owners are Sally and Duane Resel, Steve and Lori Resel, Stephanie and Jim Bonebright, Sarah Resel, and Mike and Nan Donlin.

Midway Drive-In is one of only five remaining drive-in theatres in South Dakota, the first to convert to digital projection. Whether it’s your first trip to a drive-in or you’re returning to rekindle that unique drive-in feeling, Midway Drive-In is the place to See the Stars from your Cars.

Uploaded aerial from 1963. It looks the drive-in was turned into small landing strip. There is a Crop Production business across the road. My thinking is that it is used for aerial spraying of crops.

You are correct is north of the location given. The reason why I use cross streets is because Google Maps are off some, sometimes by alot. It is close enough for the purpose of identifying the location of the drive-in.

Drive-In 54 commented about 100 Twin Drive-In on Jun 21, 2014 at 5:08 am

Chris..I checked the aerials thinking I put the wrong date on the picture. That is the right date according to the website. Was the 100 Twin built/opened as a twin screen drive-in? We need a opening day ad, that would tell us. From my research there was not to many twin drive-ins being built in the early 1950’s. In Pensacola, FL. Gulf States Theatres opened one in 1952.
