We used to go here as a family when I was little. I think I remember a playground at some point. I continued to go there for years, with various friends and boyfriends. In the 80’s, we also used to set up a booth at the swap meet on the weekends. We were there the last night it was open, to see Deep Impact. I went with my high school boyfriend, his wife and my husband, sort of like blending the old and the new.

I saw my first drive-in movie there in 1973. It was the “The Exorcist.” Me and my buddy sat on a cement block outside the car cause we were with parents that were arguing. I was 7 years old. Note: there was a playground down near the screen. I went there many more times over the years…

I worked here briefly over the summer of 1988. I cut the grass and such. Mr. Harvey was a great manager.

My wife and I went to the final night of this drive-in in 1998. We saw Deep Impact.
