In my earlier comments I referred to a gentleman as J. Dimambro as my dads partner. I just came across a website mentioning the owners of the Weymouth Drive-In in a law suit. They were Tom DiMaura and James Guarino. I think my father was smart enough to get out before these issues hit the fan. http://www.umich.edu/~drivein/theater_02.html
my dad and another gentleman built the drive-in. I can’t remember his name but my father sold his half to this man. When I was a kid my dad built another with his lawyer (Sy Queen) in Clinton Ma. In Weymouth the surrounding neighbors complained about the loud speakers used for the sound. Of course this was before the in car speakers. Also I have an interesting story about the man that asked Joe if it would be all right for him to sell food from a cart. Joe’s response was ok but you can’t bother the customers. The cart would have to remain stationary.
As it turned out food service became the real profit of Drive-Ins.
I refer to my dad’s partner as Joe because I think his name was Joe Dimambro.
