Davidcoppock, it was located just off Highway 13 on Highway 32. I always thought the 13 referred to the nearby highway.

Odd name!! Why was it called Lucky 13?

I was the last owner of this drive in back in 1987 before it ceased operations. I would have continued operations but the land owner sold it out from under me (I had a lease to own contract). They were planning to build a new bowling alley/entertainment center on the property, but that never happened. I believe it was built in 1953. The projection system was a 2 projector system that required switchovers after each reel. The lamps were carbon arc.

Approx. location for this drive-in was W Broadway & N Lemmon Ave. The drive-in stood at the end of N. Lemmon.

The ramps are still visible. The concession/projection building appears to still be there.
