 My uncle Eddie Watson worked the Elkton Drive In's back exit during some of the 1950's.  He had a few stories about some goings on.  That was also the time when folks were into cars; as he was his entire life.  Towards the end of the drive in instead of using speakers they used an AM station to hear the movies.

The address for this Drive-in is 304 E Pulaski Hwy, Elkton, MD 21921.

Now a shopping center. The entrance ran through where Olive Garden is now located.

Please update.

The Cecil Whig newspaper recently wrote a short retrospective. A couple of quotes:

Nathan Rosen had carefully located the new enterprise by finding a suitable tract, one large enough for 700 cars, on the new dual highway. The 15 acres were leased from the Society of the Divine Savior, a Catholic order popularly known as Salvatorians.

The lease was transferred to Reba and Muriel Schwartz in March 1960. The new owners were experienced motion picture operators … Local papers reported they were putting the Elk in first-class condition for the spring opening. The drive-in closed in the early 1980s, and in 1984 the property was sold.
