Remember seeing “Legend of Hell House” here in the late 70s early 80s. Awesome!

When the drive in opened in 1949 it was operated by the Pines Co. Within months, Jablonow-Komm took a 10-year lease of the facility. In 1960, Mid-America (the renamed Jablonow-Komm) bought the venue and renamed it the Falcon, adding to its car-model drive-in names, others being Thunderbird, Capri and Bel-Air.

I can say that I never saw a movie here because, well, I was underage! But even at a young age, I knew what notoriety this place had. I do remember from the newspaper ads that Andy Warhol’s “Frankenstein” was shown every weekend…in 3-D!
