In the summer of 1997,
our drive-in theatre was removed and a
New Car Dealership has been built.
Iowa had 7 in operation when the Mason City Drive-In closed and now only 3.
I saved about 25 pick up loads from the Mason City Drive-In starting a new road
for me, The Drive-In Theatre Museum.
I have now saved what I could from 4 Iowa Drive-In's.
