My whole family worked at the Walake Drive-In: Myself, my husband, my father, my In-Laws, my children, my brother. I have some pictures of my children in the projection booth, but nothing else. It was a happy time for all of us. We were terribly sad to see it go. Note from Webmaster - Please send any pics you may have, we need new drive-in content!!!!.

Wanted: photo of the Walake marquee and/or screen tower. Someone in the Walled Lake area has to have photos of this joint Can any former employees or managers help us preserve the history of the Walake Drive-In? Any photos would be acceptable, regardless of condition.

The marquee for the Walake Drive-In in Walled Lake stood for several years after the theater was torn down. I remember my school bus going past it every morning (1984-1985) and one morning, we were all shocked to see the marquee was lit up It never happened again, though, and soon after it was removed.
