Silicon Sam commented about Park Terrace Theater on Aug 2, 2009 at 12:55 pm

Are you talking about City Nights? It’s at 5810 S. Western Blvd, not 5870. Another website says Park Terrace was at 5810 as well.

I’m guessing this is what the current view SHOULD look like

Are you talking about the part of the shopping center with the stair-stepped (viewed from above) front facade? According to Google Earth, it disappeared sometime in 2004 or 2005. Historical views show it there, disappeared between 2004 and 2005, then became a parking lot.

But, in the current view, the building is back again, identical to the one in 2003 and before. Very odd…. Looks like the current view and April 2002 views are 100% identical.

Looks like Langston Company is at that address now. A large western clothing store.

Google Earth has a couple of Panoramio photos.

Somewhere near the center of THIS page…

Silicon Sam commented about Fort Benton Drive-In on Jul 30, 2009 at 8:22 pm

I’ll bet this was it, around 2300 St. Charles.

Non existent street and non existent website. Any better info on this?

Silicon Sam commented about Fly-In Drive-In on Jul 26, 2009 at 6:26 pm

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.

Silicon Sam commented about Mohawk Drive-In on Jul 24, 2009 at 12:51 pm

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.

Silicon Sam commented about Main Theater on Jul 22, 2009 at 9:05 pm

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.

Silicon Sam commented about Main Theater on Jul 22, 2009 at 2:03 pm

Looks like Scovill was renamed, and 23-29th St’s wiped out according to a 1944 Cleveland maps.

View link

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.

Silicon Sam commented about 460 Drive-In on Jul 22, 2009 at 6:25 am

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….
