Another photo from the ShowTown Drive In. This is/was the snack bar/projection booth from what I could tell.. My understanding is that a Church organization has bought the land and the drive in was to be razed..

Approx. address for this drive-in was 2001 North Bolton Avenue. The entrance, the side exit, the projection booths, the concession & 1 of the screens are still there after all these years!

Actually, it appears that both screens, although heavily damaged, are still standing.
