I worked at the flea market concession stand around 1981 or 1982. The manager was the same as the the drive in. She was tall and blond. Her blond daughter also worked the flea market concession stand. The drive in was on its death bed by the time the New World Theater opened. The place was in decline in the early 80’s.

They had in-car heaters which was essential in the frozen wasteland of Chicago. I escaped in 1973.
We went to see a double feature at the I-80 of “Woodstock” and “Performance”. Some girl crashed into our parked car thinking she could park in the exact same space. She was stoned and confused and quicly released her two boyfriends from the trunk. They took over and drove away. Silly, because we already had the plate number. She was arrested on Monday.
Of course we left early and missed “Woodstock”…how does it end?
