My father, George Jolley, used to manage this drive in theatre in the 70’s. We lived at the theatre in a mobile home supplied by the owner. I was a full time projectionist there at the age of 11. It had a ferris wheel and carousel, both of which were not working when we arrived. It had a 500' throw from the projector lense to the screen. The front screen was so large that it had to be concave for the lense to focus at the outer edges.
