Cool old ads and photos of the marquee.

Here is the entrance to the old Glenwood Drive-In. Nothing has been put in its place.

Google maps place a China King and Payless Wireless store at this address but they have be known to be off.

Thanks for the photos J.B. My mom and I drove by our old houses and the Glenwood was in between both. We could not really tell where it was at, not a clue. I lived off Glenwood as a toddler in the early ‘70’s. God Bless you all for keeping these memories alive!

Pretty easy to spot the old drive in, and the entrance was nowhere near the 4421 address. Even the old ads place it at 4347 (something like that, it’s hard to read such fine blurry print…) But 4347 maps directly to the old entrance.

Old entrance almost runs into Hollyhock Terrace once it gets to Glenwood Rd.

I think the entrance went to an area behind some apartments. I do not remember seeing the screen or parking area from the street.

The pictures are great. You must have taken these before digital cameras. I like the way you show the drive-in open and then deteriorating.
