We are still trying to nail down the exact location of this drive-in. If anyone has any ideas, I’d like to hear them.

A possible location could be at E9716 M-28, Munising – where the Re/Max Superiorland Real Estate office is. If you look at the 1981 aerial on Historic Aerials you can see what kind of looks like signs of a drive-in outline and possibly faint signs of some ramps.

Based on the descriptions given in the link provided by Drive-In 54 earlier in this thread, it appears that the drive-in may have been obliterated by the re-routing of M-28.

A 1953 aerial along with a 1959 and 1966 topo map do not show the M-28 highway as it exists today.

By the descriptions, the drive-in would appeared to have been west of Conners Road and north of what is now Prospect Street, but in the 1959 topo was M-28.

Given all the houses present on the topo maps of the time, the large, open area where the drive-in might have been is now mostly under the new M-28.
