this place has been demolished, all the equipment and two rusty cars a 1962 Corvair and a 1967 dodge dart has been pushed behind the screen. The foundation for the screen is still there, there is a small room in the foundation that still exists, the screen is gone and the field is completely grown over. They used a RCA sound system and before they closed they were transmitting on the radio and had done away with the drive-in speakers. They were using carbon arc projectors right up until they closed. The lot of land that the drive in was on will be a suburb by 2014.
The life of this drive was 1965 to 1982 roughly.
