Lake Drive-In

The St. Marys Drive-In was opened June 11, 1948 with Ronald Reagan in “Stallion Road”. It was operated throughout its life by Chakeres Theaters Inc. At opening it had a capacity for 500 cars. Chakeres Theatres Lake Drive-In was still in operation in the early-2000’s, but could be fixed a little better (some TLC). Chakeres Theatres Lake Drive-In played first-run movies if Chakeres Theatres Celina Cinema 5 has no room for it and sometimes Lake Drive-In played movies that have played at Cinema 5. Chakeres Theatres Lake Drive-In opened in late-May and was closed for the season in early-August and it opened Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the season, never 7 days. It was closed permanently in the late-2000’s

This is no longer on the Chakeres website, therefore it is closed.

Looks like it’s in pretty good shape and could be re-opened.

Looks like its being used as a parking lot for Midwest Logistics Systems but the drive-in still seems intact.
