This photo was lifted from my website by Ray Plummer. The photo can be seen at my site.. www.drive-inthruwisconsin.com. You can see my name at the bottom of the pic which was then photoshoped out. Shame on you Ray Plummer. Give credit where credit is due.

I am not the person who placed this photo on the sight. I only wrote the information about the theatre. Someone else placed the photo here.

It Could Have Been Closed Sometime In The 1970s Or 1980s. The Drive-In Was Not There In 1992.
