Great drive in. But you had to watch where you parked. In 1959 I had a new Chevy convertible and if you were near bridges you would get stuff dumped on you.

Fished in the lake before it was drained and filled in for the drive-in. The drive-in was unique due to the arched that held up a railroad overpass. On some nights the trains would rumble over the movie sounds. The last movie I saw there was “The Harder they fall” with Humphrey Bogart.
