Twilite Drive-In

The Twilite Drive-In opened in 1948 and was run by R.J. Ashmun. The drive-in was still open in 1955. It has since been demolished and the marquee is preserved on a building across the street.

A Menards home improvement store was built on the site in 2006.

The marquee was on the building of The Listening Room. Doing some research it appears The Listening Room moved to a different location, and on their website they state that the mural was up until 2014 and they have a video of the lighting ceremony. Going down to street view I cannot locate the marquee anywhere so it appears that this one is lost.

Maybe The Listening Room took the marquee with them to their new location?

Boxoffice, Feb. 22, 1960: “William Sarchet has purchased the interest of Alvin Seeley in the Twilite Theatre Co., which owns and operates the Twilite and Bel-Air drive-in theatres at Saginaw. Sarchet thus becomes half owner, effective March 1, with Ashmum Theatres owning the other half.”
