Park Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Park Drive-In was one of the newer drive-ins built in either the late-1950’s or early-1960’s. For awhile one could bring the family until adult R rated pictures were the rage. Seems management pretty much wanted a full lot with cheap B product, with low film costs. I know they are in to make money with movies such as: "School Girl Murders" and "House Of Exorcism". First feature was shown twice at 7:00 and 10:20 and the second big hit at 8:55 pm. Adults 2.50.

November 6, 1977 "Too Hot to Handle" and "Cover Girl Models". On top of that they had a 1am late show double feature of "Flesh Gordon" and"Cry Uncle". February 3, 1980 at the Park Drive-In is "Walk of the Dead" and "Vampire Hookers". Later that night on a separate admission is "Pleasure Shop" and "MASH’D". For what its worth the Park Drive-In did have two mainstream films,"Animal House" and "Goin' South", but again at night they cleaned the lot off for a separate admission to see the X-rated "Exotic French Fantasies" and "Swedish Sorietory Girl" February 24, 1980, and finally when it couldn’t get any worse, "Inseminoid" and 2 rated X movies for late shows. The Park Drive-in was still running movies well into the 1980’s before going dark.

The X-Rated Title above in the above article was “MASH’D” I guess an X-rated Rip-off?

Mike Rogers: “MASH’D” was a X-rated rip off of “MASH”…imagine members of the 4077th doing explicit sex acts in a porn parody of the TV-show and the 1970 movie……..I thought the girl was NO Loretta Swit…

From the tagline…It’s “MASH” with an “X”! “MASH’D”

I found some information on this movie. It was an “X” rated movie from 1976 and it starred two porn actresses of their day…Remember Annie Sprinkle and Andrea True.
