General Information:

The M-60 Drive-In opened somewhere around 1953. Owner when it opened was not given. Steve Eisner took over the drive in in 1969. The theatre closed in 1983. The ozoner had a car capacity listed at 400 with a single screen. It was used for a flea market in 1992-1993 and the structure still remains. I spoke to the former projectionist when he stopped by the Capri Drive-in in Coldwater one night and he indicated the M-60 was never that busy.

I use to drive by this place alot. I saw a sign on the ticket booth that I thought was cool. I found the owner of the property and bought it. It's a hand painted sign that has the admission price and rules. I would be happy to send you a picture of it. I have it im my gameroom. Ken S
