The drive in on 98 was the Forest Drive In if I am not mistaken. Submitted by gary on Sat, 11/26/2011 - 11:32pm Whoops. I believe you are right. Anyone know exactly where this was on 70?

I think it was on the land that Operations Drive is located on. Submitted by gary on Sun, 11/27/2011 - 5:28am Thanks Anon- I have to approve all comments because of spam. Thanks to your help, I found it on a 1972 aerial. Fortunately drive-ins are pretty distinctive on aerial views.

My parents would load up us 4 kids, with a picnic basket, and head to the Midway on a warm summer night. We would watch the movies from the back of a pickup truck, or sit on benches that were provided in front of the screen. I don't remember any movie that I saw there, but I remember we had fun. Sometimes we got hotdogs, and candy and popcorn from the snack bar. I remember I always knew we were near the Drive In when I saw the lights on the 3 radio towers thru the woods on the left. This was early 50s, before I-85 of course. It was there at least into the mid 70s, don't know when it was demolished. Add new comment Log in or register to post comments.
