The screen is still in place. It almost looks like it was purposefully kept as part of the new driving track.

WAEB was on the tower behind the drive-in. I used to work there when I was in High School when the station was on Fenwick Street.

When I would get off work during the summer, It was easy to sneak in by walking in the exit, going to the concession stand, buy something to eat and sit in one of the back rows on the ground and listen on a speaker.

This was a true gem. The large screen faced Union blvd. and one could see the film while driving by. Yes, it was the WAEB towers that could be seen from the drive in. I recall going to this drive in as late as the summer of 1984. (double feature…Breakin' and Beat Street!)
