While taking my daughter to school this morning, I caught a quick glimpse of something in the lobby of the old Hiland Theatre building, so I stopped in this afternoon to confirm my suspicions. I’m going to have to give the building a walk-through to see if anything else from the heyday survived.

That’s just another one of mine from a different site. ;–)

Light wasn’t the best today. I’m going to get back some time in the AM and see what things look like.

If you drive to see it, it’s more than just sad looking. It’s doomed.

The Strand can be seen to the lower right in this postcard view of the Keith’s Theater. (Best viewed in the large size.)

It took a while to figure out where this one had been located. It has since been home to a dairy and a dentist.

I think 47520 is an Indiana zip code.

Bill Eichelberger commented about Ferguson Hills Drive-In on Aug 18, 2009 at 7:57 am

When the Ferguson was a flea market, my friends and I would go once a month to see what deals we could scare up. This would have been 1979-81. One guy bought a pair of 6x9 speakers for his Duster for the astronomical price of $25. I couldn’t believe how he was throwing money around that day. The guys who were selling them out of the back of a truck were pretty seedy looking and he had us write the license number of the truck down in case he was getting ripped off. They actually turned out to be pretty decent speakers. As a kid I watched one of the Fred MacMurray Flubber movies here. It was quite a drive and I’m not sure why we made it. The Pike 27 was just ten minutes from our house.

Sorry about the brevity, but there was no parking available and I was due to pick my daughter up from skating practice.
