This phrase was used as a slogan for the state of Michigan. "Water Wonderland" appeared on
Michigan license plates beginning in 1954.
It was modified to "Water-Winter Wonderland" in 1965. It continued to appear on license plates through 1967. The maize and blue color
scheme honors the University of Michigan in its sesquicentennial year.
This site is part of an on-going effort that began in 1996. The plan is to roll out new sections
in stages as more information becomes available. As of now, we have information and images on virtually
every Drive-In Theatre that ever existed in Michigan as well as almost all of the Indoor Theatres. There is some
great information on Amusement Parks and many other sites of interest also.
Our primary long-term goal is to ensure there is a complete and permanent record of the people, places and things
that make Michigan a unique place to live as well as a great destination spot for folks everywhere. Sadly, many
of these things are already gone or are on the way out. This makes this task all the more urgent.
Although about 90% of the images and a good portion of the other content on this site is new, original material,
there are some other great sites that have been an inspiration to us in this endeavor. Please check our links section to explore them
as well. When information from other sources is used, we have tried hard to make sure proper credit is given and a link is provided to
the source material.
