Another victim of Walmart.

It was actually the first Wal-Mart in that part of the state. I remember going to that drive-in in 1985 (we were underaged, so we used a piece of plywood to circumvent the “severe tire damage”); they still used window speakers, which I found funny when watching porno. :)

This drive-in was located where Kohl’s is now. Approx. address is 4210 Franklin Road. The screen was facing away from the highway (near the back of what is now Home Depot).

Apparently in 1971 this drive-in faced obscenity charges for screening “Love Camp 7” however the charges were dropped when the drive-in agreed to never screen the film again.
