I never saw a movie here, but I always liked the way the screen looked – I recently scanned an old photo I have of it. You can see it here:

Originally, there was a large American Indian (with an arrow ready to be fired from his bow) underneath the name Mohawk on the back of the screen. This was a very difficult drive-in to sneak into!
