A rendering of the Ecorse Drive-In appeared in the February 17, 1951, issue of Boxoffice. The architect was Ted Rogvoy. The Ecorse was built for Charles Komer’s Community Theatres circuit.

The site is now a small strip mall called Taylor Commons which opened in 1991, according to real estate listings. Most of the strip is now vacant, but a Taco Bell, McDonald’s and Applebee’s are all in the parking lot.

Anyone remember the storm of July 16, 1980? If I remember correctly it destroyed the screen of the Ecorse Drive In and it had to be rebuilt.

Photos of the destroyed screen from July 1980 can be seen here….
