Now being used as a commercial storage and parking lot, the Meadowbrook Drive-In’s specialty was second run triple features. It closed in the 1970’s. Its screen and marquee are still intact.

With thanks to J. Bowers.

At one time, THis Drive In was going to be re-opened, back in 1999/2000 if I remember correctly, BUT The plans fell thru.. It is used, I believe by Waste Management, for storing their dumpsters…….

Was a BMX bicycle track for awhile…Check out the bike mounted on the old marquee, if it’s still there.
