Eri-Lyn Drive-In

The Eri-Lyn Drive-In (named for the nearby towns of Erie and Lyndon) was located off Route 78 South. It was a single-screen drive-in which opened in March 1968. It was closed around 1987.

Sometime later, the drive-in was razed except for the marquee, which still stands.

The final season was, I believe, in 1987, which is the year my family attended a double feature of “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “Top Gun” there. I’m pretty sure it remained closed when the next year’s drive-in season came along; I’m not sure when the screen came down.

Amazing how the marquee has stood for 20 years.

Approximate address is 11475 Crosby Rd, Morrison, IL 61270 which will map to the site of the marquee.

A closer address is 11480 Crosby Road, Morrison, IL.

Google Maps has updated their addresses. This one puts it right on the property.

A 2018 Google Street View shows some additions to the property. The entrance road next to the marquee has been resurfaced and buildings are now on the back part of the property.
