Ft. George Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in Southgate to the southwest of Detroit, near Wyandotte. The Fort Drive-In opened in 1950. It was run by Nicholas George and Cooperative Ct., as was just about every theatre in the area “downriver” from Detroit it seems. The Fort George Drive-In had an initial capacity of 1,200 cars; after a renovation in 1977, it had a capacity of 1,300 cars. When the screen was damaged by high winds in 1990, it was torn down in 1991.

By the way, as you can see from the photos on the page that Lost Memory posted, this started out as the Fort Drive-in. When Nicholas George bought it, he renamed it the Fort George.
