Oldtimet..have any pictures?
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.
Yep..Kerry Segrave’s book “Drive-in Theaters A History from Their Inception in 1933” is pretty good also.
No I have not. Sometimes my source’s are back issues of old newspapers There is alot of the small town drive-ins that not on CT. I’m working on Hutchinson, KS drive-ins now.
Drive-in.com? You need to becareful on that one.
Where did you see or heard about it at?
Good luck in finding it.

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.
You are correct about is was never the Theatair. I have been on Wikimapia also. But still learning it. So was the Lakewood DI located at?
This is the correct address: 2424 240th St Hallock, MN 56728. It is now Crop Production Services company location.
Note: Goggle maps does not locate to it.
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.
The correct address is:
Charlestown Pike & Lakewood Blvd
Jeffersonville, IN 47130

Maybe the owners are hoping to reopen it some day.

We’ll use this site to introduce our business and explain the goods and services we have to offer. The Drive-In opened in 1946. The screen used to sit on the south side of the property until a tornado came through, and when the owners (at that time) rebuilt they moved it to it’s current location on the west side. We have the capacity for over 300 cars in an evening. We have a large selection of food items at our concession stand along with the traditional Movie Loves of Fresh Popcorn, Soda and Candy; you can get a variety of sandwiches, we also have a fresh vegi box with ranch dipping sauce for the more healthy alternative.

Still open in Sept. 1985
