The location of this business is currently in the city limits of Kentwood, several miles south of the city of Grand Rapids.

The Stardust Drive-In restarted operation in August 1962 with Floyd Bloss as operator. The theater was not in operation before that. I became associated with Mr. Bloss shortly after that as co-operator and projectionist. At that time 2nd run family movies were shown. In 1964 it converted to x rated fare and closed in the 70’s. Mr Bloss now resides in Las Vegas. I left the business when x rated movies were played. Mr Bloss also operated the Hastings Drive-In and the Burton Capri theaters. John Whitman

Since it was the only drive-in in town when it opened, the original name was simply Drive-In Theater. It was renamed the Division in late 1948 or early 1949. The next name change came around 1962 when it became the Stardust.
