Lenawee Twin Drive-In

Opened in June 1948, the Lenawee Auto Theatre and was owned by Robert Tuttle, later Donald Swenk and then Associated Theatre. It later became the Lenawee Drive-In and then when the second screen was added in 1978 it became the Lenawee Twin Drive-In. It closed in September of 1989. The drive-in was demolished and the MJR Adrian Cinema 10 is where the drive-in once stood.

Sorry Chuck, but that newspaper photo is of the Sky on the south side of Adrian when it was falling apart. There are no known photos of the Lenawee available, I’ve looked. I could draw it from memory but hopefully will find some pictures, somewhere, someday.

The second screen was added to the Lenawee in 1978, I believe I saw the first movie shown on it. It was smaller than the main screen, maybe 20 x 40'. Radio sound along with the regular speakers came with the second screen.

Boxoffice, Nov. 24, 1956: (after talking about his latest promotions) “Bob Tuttle, who started with the competing Sky Drive-In in 1950, sold out there to William G. Jenkins, his partner, and took over the Lenawee with Don Swenk.”
