Chuck…The drive-in website says 9270. Also, the website has a nice history about the drive-in.
It does not show up on any 1951,1963 aerial maps?
Uploaded 1948 and 1968 aerials!!
Uploaded the opening day ad. Also aerials from 1970 and 1980
Opened May 1,1957..I believe
You can tell they put the Cinema-Scope screen in front of the flat screen. A lot of drive-in theatres did that.
shobiz26.. do have pictures of the drive-ins to share?
More pictures and information HERE
The St. Clair Ave address was the correct address back in the day, but they made St. Clair Ave a limited access road. So an access road was built so 8601 California Dr. is the correct address now.
Between 1954 and 1966 the drive-in was rebuilt and a new screen tower was built on the east end of the lot. It looks like to increase the size of the parking ramp.
It was operated by Malco Theatres,Inc 1975-1986 also.
@redcornmiller do have any pictures to share?

I uploaded some new pictures of the amusement park rides at Meadowbrook from the mid 1950’s. Pictures are courtesy of Nancy and Paul Coffman…Tiffin, Ohio.
Oops..not a TOPO
Uploaded a few movie ads and aerial from 1965.
Just uploaded TOPO showing the two entrances.
richardnecochea…the best way is to go to the local library and start going through the copies of the local newspaper and look at the movie ads.
Uploaded the grand opening ad from Dec 17,1964
Added aerial from 1991
