I’ll bet this was it, around 2300 St. Charles.
Non existent street and non existent website. Any better info on this?
This location fits all the descriptions above. At the airport, and the lot looks like it has a projection booth right in the center of it. Certainly could have been a multiple screen drive-in.
1993 image shows it more clearly.
From what I gather, the location is wrong. Here is a current view of where it was (Hwy 22 and Houser, near the High School)
And what it looked like in 2000
Look at the Mohawk Drive-In link for more information on the Tri-Town.
The article was written almost 3 years ago, and the drive-in is still open today. So wonder what happened in the time since the article has been written?
Here’s an update, not sure of the date of this article however….
I’d be willing to bet the new housing subdivision named the street after the drive-in. There was no street there while the drive-in was open.
I assume you meant North Shore Dr. in Houston on the map link. Just put a space between North and shore and it will work.
It was right where Mohawk Dr. is now.
It’s actually just North of the town of Whalom.
Something’s screwy with the Tri-Town website. Their own map link takes you to Lunenberg, but their driving directions takes you just outside of Fitchburg.
Way North of town is what looks like a fan shaped rows, and an abandoned asphalt road to the West.
I’ve update my July 22 2009 map link above to show the difference between 1930’s and today. Lots of streets are no longer around due to “progress” Green dot on the upper half shows where the theater would have been.
Looks like Scovill was renamed, and 23-29th St’s wiped out according to a 1944 Cleveland maps.
25th St. still exists about 1 mile NW, at Grand Army of the Republic Hwy near exit 173C of I-90.
Must have done some renumbering, or renaming. There is no 2500 block of Scovill any longer. Looks like Community College Ave rerouted and renamed at some point.
Highway 460 was renamed Route 14 in 1974. The configuration of the property East of town looks like a possible place for a drive-in.
Did Chipotle keep the marquee and vertical riser that Kuong Cafe had?
I’m guessing this was the exact location….
……… Viewing hours at 3:30, 6:00, 8:30 and 11:15.
Looking at the show times on their site, they have to have 2 screens…
Google is asleep at identifying Monahans on the map. It is located here:
And I think I found the old drive-in (there could have been more than one)
And I think I found the old drive-n (there could have been more than one)
James, you have no contact info, and I’ve been by there 3 times in June, and no one is ever around. I’d like to take some photos for the group.
Last time I drove by, I did not see much other than a new boarded up front. Did look like a new roof from peeking through the front. Last picture I have is from March 2009
Went through a month ago, but was busy taking pictures of a few other abandoned buildings, namely the old high school. Interesting old town…
