I was just a little kid when they tried the cooler experiment. I remember how it knocked me over when they turned them for the first time!

william lewis commented about another shot of the snack bar at the 99 on Oct 5, 2012 at 12:59 pm

You would have to stand way back in a corner of the lot to see how huge the 99 was. It held 1500 cars!

some of those old movie posters are worth money today. I can still remember my dad taking old ones down and stuffing them into those trash cans and throwing them away when he was ready to hang up new ones! thousands of them must have gone through his 3 drive ins over the decades!

william lewis commented about fence on the exit side on Sep 25, 2012 at 7:54 pm

The theater had really gotten ratty looking because I took these photos just before it was to be torn down. We always kept them up real nice and tidy.

william lewis commented about both snack bars on Sep 23, 2012 at 7:24 pm

this photo gives you some tiny idea of how large the 99 was. it held 1500 cars!

william lewis commented about driveway and box office on Sep 23, 2012 at 7:18 pm

this photo was taken just before the 99 was torndown in the fall of 1982. That’s why it’s so ratty looking.

I though that I would give you a correct street view since yours was so wrong.

We had alot of old photos like this around the house, but over the years they got destroyed and tossed out.

Great addition to the photo line-up! This goes along with the B&W photo of my dad’s photo. I’m just guessing about the date on it. I was all of about 6 years of age when it was taken.

I’m 70 years old and know that my heirs will most likely toss all my old photo and slide collection in the trash. I’m posting them so that they can live on for others to share.

william lewis commented about snack bar on Sep 11, 2012 at 1:58 pm

This photo was taken in 1982. The “back” snack bar had, by this time, been boarded up and used for storage.

william lewis commented about Good bye, this is what happens to old drive in theaters on Sep 11, 2012 at 1:46 pm

This is what happened to all 3 of our drive in theaters. The 99, Terrace, and So. Chester are now history!

william lewis commented about South Chester Drive-In on Sep 11, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Your street view is all WRONG! The So.Chester was at Union Ave and south Chester Ave. I don’t know how to fix it!
