Both the Miracle Twin and US 23 will not open this Spring


Both are up for sale and are expected to be torn down and used as retail development; probably Meijer or Walmart


This is fucking bullshit

Only 7 drive ins [ not including the Compuware temp theatre] are left in Michigan


And rumor has it the Ford Wyoming in Dearborn will close later this year

There were more than 100 drive ins in Michigan [ Nearly 5.000 nationwide]


Reaching a peak in 1972 with nearly 130 drive ins

Only 400 left today in the United States


And i guess Michigan won't have any in a few more years because this state sucks donkey shit and has that whore Granholm and a bunch of jigs in Detroit wrecking everything



And local governments from Algonac to Zilwaukee that are all NAMBY and NIMBY when it comes to having a drive in and their asinine zoning laws

Nearest drive-in to me remains 30 miles. Only 2 drive-ins within 60 miles of my house.

Won't be any if the Ford Wyoming shuts down


I don't consider the Compuware drive in [ portable screens in the parking lot of the arena a real drive in]

And I wouldn't step foot there if it was


Boycott that idiot Karmanos


I don't care if he built a slew of drive ins


He is an idiot

Yeah Right


But Karmanos is a stupid liberal so what you expect

Just like the damn liberal judge who is ordering a woman, who recently killed 4 teenagers in Metro Detroit[ while rriving drunk] for a psych exam


Fuck that shit

Speaking of Movie Theatres


Rumor has it the Allen Park Movie Theatre will close soon


The last second run movie house in the Area


Where the hell are people supposed to go see a second run movie [ dollar 50 show]

I guess wait until it comes out on DVD


Because most movies right now are not worth paying 8:50 to see them first run

Quo Vadis

Dearborn Showcase


Lincoln Park 8

Southgate AMC 4 [ stood next to the Fort George Drive In; where Southgate Meijer is now; FUCK MEIJER!}


Showboat in Riverview

Southland 4 inside Southland Mall


All are gone or are vacant like the LP 8 and Dearborn and Ford Tel

It looks like the U.S 23 Twin Drive in will not be torn down;

In fact; according to Michigan Drive Ins.com; The owners of the U.S 23 are looking to lease the theatre to an unnamed person for possibly the next five years;adding two more screens. The screens are rumored to be the ones from the now defunct Sad Pontiac Silverdome temporary drive in


According to Louis Warrington III; The drive in is expected to reopen this summer under new management

That's great news!

Save the drive-ins! Make Wal-Mart build in uninhabited places.

I should boycott Wal-Mart and those places but I just can't do it. They sell too much stuff for too cheap. I hate seeing them bulldoze something to make room for the Wal-Mart though.

And because Walmart sells cheap stuff

They put a lot of small business owners out of business


Remember Walmart imports most of its stuff from China or India


And people wonder why our economy sucks so bad

Yeah, but I don't like paying more for the same thing I can get at Wal-Mart for less.

Most of what I buy at Wal-Mart is electronics and video games and stuff. Even if the mom and pop stores weren't out of business, that stuff is no more American-made than the version they sell at Wal-Mart.

For other types of things I support local stores. I don't buy clothes at Wal-Mart. We don't buy food at Wal-Mart either.

Update


The U.S 23 opened last Friday

Too bad they tore out the speakers according to the Michigan Drive Ins Forum


I hate listening to Movies on my car radio; [ Like Compuware Drive In which sucks and I am boycotting because it is on hockey arena parking lot of the Plymouth Whalers and an arena named for by Karmanos; who I hope dies and rots in hell]

I rather have speakers

All Drive Ins should have them;


Ford Wyoming has some speakers; But I don't like going there much anymore; It is in the shitty part of East Dearborn; bordering Detroit , too many blacks and Arabs in that area; Hardly any whites; Bad Neighborhood; Not Safe at all!




I miss having a Drive In Downriver


Of course you will never see a new one built in my area; NEVER!

Too many closed minded people, who hate Drive Ins; that run these cities and would never allow one to be built

Beats wasting your car battery listening to your radio [ my radios in my cars suck by the way ] for an entire movie

Sound is better through the car stereo (more speakers). If you turn the car to accessories it shouldn't drain the battery. I've never had a dead battery after the movie so even if it was draining the battery who cares - it charges back up when you drive.

Of course if your car does drain the battery that would be a problem since it's a hassle to get a jump after the movie is over.

Either that or bring a radio with me.



But I like speakers; I remember when I was a kid and we went to drive ins; I would play with the speakers before the movie started


Sad most drive ins have done away with them

You should move here - our drive-in still has speakers and it always shows a double feature. They have a snack shop if you prefer to buy overpriced snacks instead of bringing your own. They also play that "let's all go to the lobby" song before both movies which is always fun.
