Graveyard of Miracle Twin DI in Burton, MI

This large twin drive-in has a capacity for 1,000 cars for two screens. It still had some of the traditional speakers but primarily FM sound. It screened double fetures seasonally April thru September. Admission 12 and up is $6.00 and 5-11 is $2.50, under 5 were free.

National Amusements closed the Miracle Drive-In at the end of the 2008 season. It was demolished in March 2012.

Both sides of the drive-in’s roadside sign are now completely boarded up with the boards whitewashed. The large expressway sign still looks the same as does the rest of the drive-in.

Rumor has it that National Amusement has leased their two theaters in Michigan (and 30 in the US) to a Texas based Theater company. They are looking at the possibility of reopening the Miracle Twin Drive In, which can be fully operational with some minor work since all the equipment is still in place.

The above real estate listing shows that the listed price for this former drive-in has been reduced to $1.6 million.

@lexmarks567: The two remaining NA indoor multiplexes they were still operating in Michigan were sold to Rave Motion Pictures. A former NA cinema they were leasing in Courtland Center in Burton was reopened by Owosso-based NCG Cinemas. The former Showcase Cinemas East is also listed for sale and the former Cinema 10 which they leased in Flint Township is boarded up.

The drive-in is being torn down. See the new photo.

The ticket booths are now gone and the debris from demolition have been removed. The speaker poles, screen towers, asphalt field and signs remain.
