AKA Silver Drive-In

First of all, the monkey's name was not Corky. They actually had a talking parrot who was named Corky. I'm not sure what the monkey's name was. I am a niece of the owner. Gloria Perkola Hamel was my dad's twin sister. I remember the drive-in when I was about 4-6yrs old (1975-1977). I remember the little Ferris wheel and the concession stand. I would purposely order a sundae from my uncle art because he would load it with cherries and whipped cream!! I also remember my Uncle Art patrolling the lot with a flashlight. I remember being scarred for life from the movie Jaws and Carrie! ??. I remember falling asleep on the way home and my dad carrying me in the house. I would do anything to go back to those days! ?.

This theatre was thought to be an empty lot, however it was far from empty. The remnants of the ticket booth, the concession stand and marquee were still there. Note the awesome tile work in the concession stand that spells out Lakes. This drive-in was located right in the middle of a residential area and was surrounded by houses. It must have been quite a site seeing all of the cars clogging the streets on movie nights in the summer!
