Rocket Drive-In

The Rocket Drive-In opened in 1957 with a capacity for 300 cars. This drive-in closed in October 2004, and was partially demolished to be replaced by new condominium development. In 2017 the site remains empty.

The aerial view from Google Maps shows the Rocket’s footprint mostly untouched in 2017. Even the projector / concession building is still there.

Google Street View from 2012 shows the base of the marquee still there along with a “10 acre for sale” sign. Makes you wonder if they’d have been better off keeping the drive-in alive.
