IN THE ADDRESS, PLEASE CHANGE:

U.S. 30 TO LINCOLN HIGHWAY

For some reason when you go to the Map, U.S. 30 does not go to the correct corner, but Lincoln Highway goes to the site of the Drive-In.

Chuck, it does NOT. Greengate Road has a jog in it at U.S. 30/Lincoln Highway. U.S. 30 puts it at Walgreens, Lincoln Highway puts it at Gabriel Brothers which is at the site of the Drive-In. Try it! I don’t understand why it Maps that way, but it works!

Chuck, no question Google Mapping can be OFF.

I don’t recall that I’ve ever not used an actual address just because it didn’t work out with Google. Most often I’ll add it’s a block West or whatever. The problem is finding the actual address.

In this case we do not know and may never know the actual address. We do know the site. Seems to make sense to put that down as the address and have it correctly Map. That way, in this case when someone from Greensburg looks up this Drive-In they can see the exact spot it was at. That seems to be the most helpful.

“wrong cities, and spelling of cities, street names” a pet peeve of mine, I think you’ve got me mixed up with Mike Rogers. Sorry Mike.

“years of operation” ~ballpark numbers? but gives the readers a general idea of a theaters years of operations. Better then not having any years listed. Was it operating in 1910 or 1960?

Please don’t critize Mike Rivest too much. Let me know when your more acurate Website of over 55,000 U.S. Theaters is up so I can use it instead of Mikes. I joke.

As it stands now, this Drive-In has no address, which is not very helpful. I can not live up to your standards, so I do not dare add an address, so I leave that up to you if you so wish. Another possible address is 801 North Greengate Road, that’s the address of Gabriel Brothers.
