I grew up in the Lake area, money was extremely scarce for residents and going out to do anything was a rare treat. Going to a ‘picture show’ was something most local folks could only do once or twice a year. In an effort to attract vacationers as well as locals, the Grand Glaize drive-in would post flyers on cardstock that listed the shows and times for a month. These were given to stores and gas stations around the lake and as far away as Eldon. The concession stand had the typical hotdogs and burgers but the only thing we ever wanted was a large tub of Buttercup popcorn, extra butter. Just the sight of the Buttercup container would make us drool.
The Grand Glaize was still in operation in the early 1970’s.
