It would appear that this opened before 1963. It is fully visible in a 1955 Historic Aerial.

I remember going to the DI every weekend during my teenage years growing up in Evart, MI. Looking at the pics makes me feel very old. Not much has changed except the overgrowth of weeds. The last movie I saw here was "Fast Times at Ridgemont High". It very sad that my kids will never experiance the era of Drive Ins. Thanks for the memories.
