New Drive-in Screen

The investment in the new screen seems to indicate the owners, Loeks Theaters, are no longer planning on closing the theater to sell the land.

    Good to know. There aren't many drive-ins left. I'm ashamed to say, but I grew up in Muskegon and have never been to the drive-in. Would like to get there one of these days.

    OMG! It's a must!

    I haven't been there as much as I should have. I only went there once or twice with my family, it wasn't until high school I started to go more often and still maybe only once or twice a season.

    I want to go one night this summer but my friends around here didn't seem too keen on the idea (I think they are afraid of Muskegon or something). I guess I'll have to keep mentioning it.

    Cool.

    Here's a list of Michigan's drive ins, dead and alive:

    Interesting that it's still considered a viable business. I like the shot...so much blue & white and a good perspective.

    I'll go! Of course I'm never there so it might have to be next year.... But I'll go.

    Also, that's a REALLY shiny screen. Wow. Hurray.

    Thanks Sistercat! You can also check out a website called cinematreasures.com for all types of theaters.

    Phil: From my understanding what the main reason for most drive-ins going out of business was rising land values. This drive-in is not in the most affluent area of Muskegon so I think that's probably actually kept them going so much longer.

    Cyril: We need to go! Do you remember when me and you and Allen and I think Mike went the night we got back from DC?

    I'm ashamed to say that's the ONLY time I've gone. It was still awesome. Not that I can remember what we saw.... But I did remember WHO I went with. So that's something.

    That's what it's really all about anyway! Who cares if you remember the movie as long as you had a good time :)
