Ken, the glassed in area is a small stage for services or performances. It wasn’t much of a drive-in, the picture was projected with a VHS outfit at 4 x 3 and not film. It never had cinemescope. Last I heard someone wanted to re-zone the place to commercial so possibly movies will show again. As a church drive-in, there were no property taxes.

What a goofy looking theater. With a flat, grassy lot how can you see the picture, especially with vehicles in front of you? I noticed no speaker posts at all. Screen tower/residence does not look tall enough to get the picture high enough. What is the glassed in structure blocking the right side of the screen? Looks to be very annoying.

Nearest open drive-in is 40 miles away in Coldwater.

Both of the owners have recently passed away, and the Devils Lake Drive-In has been permanently closed.

What kind of movies were they running?
