This theater was built and opened in 1953 by J. L. LeDuc who also operated the Cedar and Oak Theaters in Manistique. The drive in opened as the US-2 Drive in and changed to Cinema Two in 1972 when LeDuc sold it to David Vaughan who operated it along with a new hard top, Cinema One. Vaughan sold both theaters to William Giles in 1995, the drive in was closed in 2001.

Thanks for this site! In summer, 1975, my wife, daughter and I took a road trip from Chicago to circumnavigate the shores of Lake Michigan through Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. We stayed a day and a half in Manistique, MI. It proved to be the highlight of the trip! We went to this drive-in to see the Young Frankenstein movie. About half-way through the flick I noticed the sky beginning to glow a little way beyond the screen. At first I thought that must be the city lights of nearby big city.

Yeah, what big city? DANG! I got my first look at the Northern Lights that night! Manistique, I think you got the beautiful place to be in the summer!! Cheers, Greg.

I was just drove by the place and it is still standing, and in pretty good shape considering. Most of the wood fencing is down or decayed but the screen is still there intact and looks good, the ticket booth and gate is still there, and the concession and projection is still there. it is quite overgrown and the gravel road to the ticket booth is hard to see. The property is for sale and it might be a good place to start if someone wanted to rehab and get it up and running with out a huge expense of starting from scratch. That is my dream.

I will post some pics as well. Even the marque is still there.

When I was passing by the drive-in I noticed a house at the back of the lot it looks as if the the owner is living there or has lived there.

The Cinema 2 still stands, although there is some activity on the lot, it is unclear what is being planned.
