Here's another shot of the 13-24 Drive-in Theatre in Wabash, Indiana. It's called this because it is on Route 13, 1 mile from Route 24 in Indiana.

Here's a nice shot of the Ford-Wyoming Drive-in Theatre of Dearborn, Michigan. The screen tower still appears to be in good condition. According to Cinema Treasures, the drive-in opened in 1950 as a single screener. By the early 1990's, the drive-in had grown to nine screens. 04-01

Here's a different angle to the Ford Wyoming Drive-in, including a view of the marquee. A straight on look at the screen is just below.

 

 

UPDATE 12/10 : The drive-in is now called the Ford Drive-in. They closed screens 6 thru 9 on Wyoming Avenue and had them torn down. The drive-in is still open for movies on Ford Road but it's only a five screen drive-in theatre now. Many thanks to David Hughes for update. 12-10

Near the Indiana Beach Amusement Park is the Monticello Drive-in Theatre. An interesting screen tower due to its simplicity.

Those of you familiar with the Clarksville, Indiana area will remember the old Clarksville Drive-In. Now defunct, the old marquee stands guard over the screen tower, which can be seen in the background.

How often have you seen a rams head arrow on a marquee, a drive-in one to boot? Well, you can see one for yourself off Route 13, in Wabash Indiana, no matter which direction you are driving from. This "Drive-In" is a great stop.
