his drive-in opened in 1953 aand parked 100 cars. It was owned by Jim Fleener. Still open in the mid-1970’s.

the ramps though barely visible are still there so is the foundation of the screen!

I’m not sure if anything is left of the screen foundation. A 1958 aerial shows a pretty sizable screen for such a small drive-in. While subsequent aerial photos are rather blurry, the screen was definitely gone by 2007.

Thing is, the screen sat just to the east of where the rectangular object seen in the current photo sits. The screen was against the treeline where the two trails meet in a “V” shape.

So, whatever that thing is, it cannot be part of the screen foundation. And the area where the trails meet is clear.
