Even though I grew up in the Lansing area, the countless trips to see relatives in Cadillac usually lead to driving by the Cadillac Drive-In on what is now Old US-131. My parents never took me there, nor any drive-in for that matter. I dont know when it closed - sometime in the early-mid 80s. It was torn down in the late 80s - maybe early 90s. Im sure the adddress number you give is correct, but the road today is Mackinaw Trail, otherwise known as Old US-131. The freeway leading up to the south side of Cadillac was completed in the early/mid 80s, and 131 was redesignated. The freeway also took a considerable chunk of property out of the drive-in.
The drive-in is located at the southwest wedge of the Mackinaw Trail overpass over the 131 freeway. Today, the property is an empty field with scattered pine trees. Its entrance is directly across from No. 46 Rd. The only things that remain on the property are the concrete pads of which the screen sat on and a lonely power pole. A for sale sign has been sitting on the property for several years. The screen sat on the south side of the property next to the road, facing northwest. If it was still there, a perfect view of the screen could be seen from the freeway.( Kurt Ahlgrim 12-15-99
