The Commerce was owned by the same gentleman who owned the Pontiac and Waterford drive ins. If Im not mistaken from a former employee of his, he actually owned five drive ins in Oakland County, MI, before closing them between 86 and 87, and relocating to Ohio. That same employee, gave me a pair of drive in speakers upon the closing of the "Pontiac", of which I replaced the speakers themselves, and now use for nostalgic surround sound speakers. That was 87. Within a year or two, the "Pontiac", was destroyed by arson. I may still have the article somewhere from the Oakland Press. (Chris Arble 8-31-02)
