This drive in was one of four I went to from an infant through High School and on until it's demise.

Last film I saw there was Richard Harris in "A Man Called Horse".

Loved the movie, Loved the Drive-in

Not agreeing on the opening date, can remember taking my wife and niece there in '67 or '68, maybe this was when the switch from Hellmans to UA operation.
