Dave Hamilton and his son, Mack, launched Hamilton’s Drive-In Theatre on May 18, 1950 with the film, “It’s a Grand Feeling.” On hand that night was radio station WFPA broadcasting from the grand opening. Local Boy Scouts helped direct cars to the theatre and ramps which held 400 cars at opening. DeLuxe Hot Dogs, malted milks, and cheese sandwiches were among the offerings at the snack bar.
