I do recall in the 1970’s for several years before its close, it did run triple bills at the admission price of $1.50 per carload. It was an independent at that time.

This drive-in opened on August 4, 1950 at a cost of $150,000. It closed in 1978 and was replaced by a low-income housing development. Here is a photo circa 1950s:

I used to go there when I was a kid in the 1960s. I saw the movie Goldfinger the James Bond movie and Oceans 11 starring Frank Sinatra. I remember the place very well. They had a concession stand in the middle of the place and they had a man riding around on a bike with a big flat carrier on the front that used to throw rowdy kids out of the place.
