I remember this drive in, my parents saw “10” with Dudley Moore and Bo Derek while me and my sisters were ducked behind the front seat, so we wouldnt see anything inappropriate. Another time before we saw a Rocky/RockyII double feature.

I remeber working at this theater in the 70’s and 80’s. Good times.

This was the best drive in anywhere when I was a teenager. They had a great concession stand too! Favorite was called a dipsey doodle, it was just a large fried fish stick in a hot dog bun with ketchup. We thought it was such a great treat! I went to school with the son of the owner. Unfortunately, the owner was killed by some kids who snuck extra, no paying kids in the trunk. They ran over him trying to get away with not paying. So sad. It broke my heart, killing someone over a few dollars.
