General Information:

The Seaway Drive-In opened in June of 1958. It had a capacity for 700 cars. The Seaway Drive-In closed in 1986 and has been demolished. A site inspection reveals the old snack bar and projection booth are gone also. There is an out building on the lot but I don't believe it was directly related to the drive-in when it was open.

On June 14th we have an event planned called the Seaway Drive-In Experience. It's a drag racing theme movie night at the original Seaway Drive-in property in Algonac. The movie showing will be The Snake & Mongoose and we will also be showing 15 minutes of unseen footage of Motorcity Dragway from 1972 on the big screen. This footage includes cars like Corkys The Janitor, Gregs Toy, Little Hustler, The Mongoose (from Mt Clemens I think) Greg Liedecker and a lot of local guys that were at the track all the time. There will also be classic cars and drag cars on display.

The snack bar/projection booth remains. The lot is OWNED by a local church that uses the property for picnics and other activities, but no actual church has been built on the site (yet). This location was apparently showing X rated movies at the end of its run. Large, hi-intensity lamps were aimed at the street to inhibit people from seeing the screen while the movie was showing.

Closed permanantly 1986. One night when they were open, my date and I had the only car there, and they STILL ran the movie. James Allor
