My uncle Larry Allen owned this Drive-in. His wife was my mother's sister, Jean Allen. We lived in Crown Point until about 1952, and would go to the theater quite often, and we went in free as I remember. My mother's and Aunt Jean's parents were Harold and Alice Worden, who lived in Crown Point at the time. Uncle Larry also owned a Lumber Yard and my father worked there for a few years. Larry was also a college professor, I think. We lost track of him after their divorce and Jean lived in C P for several years before having a stroke in the 1960's. She passed away in North Carolina about 20 years ago. Larry was rumored to have moved to Germany with his secretary, and is probably deceased, because he would be over 100 now. Jean's house was still there next to the Grade school when I returned there a couple of years ago, but it is quite run down, as is a good portion of the town.
