Watched many movies here as a kid with both my parents and with my older brother, until I was old enough to drive - then went on dates here throughout my early high school years. It should be noted that during most of its operation (if not all), Linden Rd. ended at Corunna Rd. (coming from the north) and did not go through to Lennon Rd. All that was there was an open field, until construction started in 1972 to push Linden Rd. through to Lennon Rd. Sad to think that out of the 7 or 8 drive-ins I remember as a kid, only one exists - the US-23 Drive-in on Fenton Rd.

This wonderful place was located about 1/2 mile from my house on Maxwell Ave. In the late 60's and all through the 70's we would go and catch the double features. My friends and I would camp out in the back yard or the surrounding fields. Then sneak up to the Westside to catch an R Rated movie. We would hide outside the fence and watch through the cracks. Many times we would see other dudes from the area doing the same thing. On a dare we would crawl under the fence and head up to the snack bar. If asked we would say we were here with our parents watching Night Time Nurses ! haha. As we got older and drove, it was party central. I can still remember the intermission word for word song for song including the dancing hotdogs!.
