@Mike Rivest: That ad could have been for the opening of the 1963 season, and not their first season. Drive-ins would frequently have Grand Opening ads every season when they reopened in the spring.

@Alonzo: Thanks for posting those pics! What a great piece of drive-in history! Love the shot of the neon lit up on the back of the screen tower, from the days when the back of screens were a work of art!
