Lake-Shore Drive-In

The Lake-Shore Drive-In was located on Route 14 in Rochester, Indiana. It was opened in June 1953. In 1955 it was owned by the Alliance Theatre Corp. In the early-1960’s there was only a downtown theatre in Rochester so folks only had two places to catch a movie. Pretty good deal at the Lake-Shore Drive-In where adults were 50 cents and kids were free.
