The Crystal Lake Drive-In opened on July 16, 1953 with Randolph Scott in “Hangman’s Knot”. Its name was soon afterward shortened to the Crystal Drive-In. This theater was located on Highway 14 at Pingree Road, in Crystal Lake. It could accomodate about 1,000 cars.
The Crystal Drive-In was still open in May 1977. Today, though vandalized and falling apart, the screen tower still stands, though the Crystal’s concession, projection and ticket structures were long ago demolished. The whole former drive-in property is now very heavily overgrown, though surrounded by ever-expanding residential development.
