Muskoka is the name of the tourism region there. See http://www.discovermuskoka.ca/

Also, Larry Baxter’s LinkedIn page says that he owned the Muskoka during July 1973-2009, which would make him the guy who sold it to William Alexander. Baxter also owned the Port Bolster (1991-99) and the Lindsay Twin (Jun 2000-“present”, actually May 2015).

Why the name Muskoka?

Here’s what my Motion Picture Almanacs tell me:

1953-54: Mushola (sic) Drive-In, owner Mushola Drive-In, no capacity number.

1959-63: Muskoka, owner Muskoka D-I Theas. Ltd., 300.

1969: Muskoka, 300.

1972-76: not listed.

William Alexander took it over in 2008, ran a failed online fundraiser in 2014, then bought the digital projector anyway. He was still cited as the owner in a June 2017 article.
