1444 W Marlette Rd, Sandusky, MI is slightly more accurate since the drive-in sat on the north side of the road.

By 1982, it had been totally demolished. Today, you can see the barest hint of an outline (parch marks) on the north side of the houses that sit on the property.

1478 W Marlette Rd, Sandusky, MI.

Google Maps has updated their addresses and this puts it right on the property.

Today, a couple of houses sit on the south side of the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.
