Ken-Mar Drive-In

The Ken-Mar Drive-In opened on April 28, 1955, when it was operated by Austin J, Pouliot. The Ken-Mar Drive-In is known to have been open in 1977, but it does not appear on a 1985 topographical map.

Most sources list its address as 1631 S. 16th Street in Escanaba, but it was actually in the 7000 block of US-2/US-41/M-35 in nearby Gladstone.

The snack bar is known to have still been standing in the 2000s, but it has since been torn down as well. It is currently a vacant lot.

Opened on 28/4/1955. There may still be a moonbeam light remaining on the site(possibly now a graveyard?)?

Why the name Ken-Mar?

An October 2019 Google Street View shows a structure, possibly the concession stand/projector booth still on the property.

A 1953 aerial shows the drive-in under construction. The projection booth/concession stand is in place and the land cleared.

A 1981 aerial shows the drive-in closed with trailers on the property and the screen gone.
