We lived behind the Crest, and I remember when they installed flood lights to keep the screen concealed from the neighbors. Thank you for this site, it's awesome.

The entrance and exit signs ended up at the Mt Pleasant MI fairgrounds as their entrance and exit signs on old 27 ( N. Mission rd ). They were there for 20 yrs but I do not remember if they still are.

In the base of the Crest Drive-In screen was an apartment, originally occupied by the owner or manager I think. In the early 1960's a friend of mine, Butch Nye, rented and lived in this apartment with his wife and a child. I visited them one time, and we went out the back door with our beers, and sat in lawn chairs and watched 'Mary Poppins'.

Wish I could return my wife of 25 years on our anniversary. How romantic!
Saw the controversial Gail Palmer adult flick "Hot Summer In The City" here.

Gone, while originally a family drive-in, this former adult drive-in site is now ironically, St.Marthas Catholic Churchs parking lot. Update:"Maybe its not so ironic now, eh? (RG 5-4-02) Opened:early 1950s
