From the company blog of INGUARD, a Wabash insurance and risk management firm that puts its names in all-caps:

“When the movie theater was in jeopardy of closing its doors in 2011, INGUARD’s CEO, Parker Beauchamp joined forces with his wife Katie, parents and the Honeywell Foundation to keep movies reeling on the silver screen.

“Since then, the 13-24 Drive In has undergone a variety of renovations (including a brand new digital projector and playground).”

INGUARD also sponsors free admission for kids 12 and under.

The drive in had a equipment failure in 2010 the night before I went there. A temporary sign was up saying they would open up soon. Then the theater went dark and a for sale sign went up. It was purchased by a family in Wabash and donated to be reopened again. It is now playing first run movies 2 nights a week and looks to be safe for some time to come.

That is what a Drive-in Theatre marquee should look like.

This is one of the older drive-ins ( I was told built in 1949, before the Drive-In heyday of the 1950’s) and is still in operation. It’s a fun night out for many families in the area. It draws its name from the two highways that are nearby (Rt 13 and Rt 24). It’s in a remote farmland area without much encroaching development, which is probably why it hasn’t been turned into a Wal Mart or such. One of the few benefits of being in rural Indiana are the numerous drive-ins. :)
