The Motorena Drive-In opened around 1949. Playground in front of the screens. Spent 3+ years there, our dad ran the projectors, mom ran concessions, and us kids picked up the litter the next morning.

The photo that I uploaded is dated 1949. The drive-in looks brand new and maybe not finished when it was taken.
