Hi again. Thought you would like to know: there was another drive- in in Monroe County. Long ago. I don't remember the name of it but it was located at Ida Corners. On the on the Nort West corner of Ida-Maybe Rd and S Custer or M-50.

I think it went up in the mid-1940's, right after WW II. And I think it had one big speaker rather than speakers in the cars. I never went there as I was too young to drive but I went past it many times and always looked for it as it was a novelty at the time. I hope this is of some interest to you.

Vince.

We had the Bel-Aire Drive-In at 6231 N. Monroe St. and the Denniston Drive-In located 1/8 mile down the road at 6501. When you parked over at screen 2 of the Bel-Aire, in the far corner, you could actually see the one screen at the Denniston through the trees. Denniston closed in 1985, and the Bel-Aire in 1987.

The Bel Aire was originally called the Custer Drive-In, the name was changed to Bel Aire in March 1969. It was still a single screen at that time.
