Correction… The Starlite Outdoor was located on Abrams Street , Not Cass street & Mason Street. This theater was located 3 blocks away from my home when I was growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s. I watched the bolt of lighting Cut the screen in half then the wind blew one half of the screen down..on the night it closed forever… We used to sneak in during the day and turn up the volume on the speakers then watch the film at night….Growing up in the 1970’s was fun…

A closer address (at least for Google) is 810 Abrams Street, Green Bay, WI. The entrance was off Victoria Street and was about a block long.

Today, the property is a housing edition with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

Final night of operation was September 9, 1982 with “Raiders Of The Lost Ark” and “The Beastmaster”. Although the ad from the day’s paper indicated “we hope to see you next year”, the June 23, 1983 edition of The Green Bay Press-Gazette announced that the drive-in would not reopen.
