Northside Drive-In late-80's.

The Northside Drive-In opened August 29, 1952 with Randolph Scott in “Santa Fe”. The original owner was Leon Robbe. The drive-in opened as a single screen. On June 29, 1984 it became a triplex. It was later owened by Ashmum Theatres and finally by Mid-States Theaters Inc. until its closing in 1988. Car capacity was listed at 800.

A closer address (at least for Google) is 14825 Old U.S. 27 Lansing, MI. Today, the property is empty with what appears to be a retention pond on the east side.

The only remnants of the drive-in remaining are the entrance/exit roads and general outline.

I Found A Drive-In Snipe From The Late 1960’s “Coming Soon” Snipe That Says “NORTHSIDE (TOS) DRIVE-IN.” I Do Not Know Where The TOS One Is? Either This Or One Other Northside Drive-Ins.
