Family Drive-In North of St. Johns on US 27.

Had lots of fun there summer of 1965-66.

My dad, Pat Massey but a lot of time and effort into this great old drive in, The good old days!!!

This was one of my favorite childhood memories. Getting a station wagon full of family and friends going and watch movie outside.

This was my family's drive in and I worked many nights there. It was a wonderful place for families. My dad had fireworks on the 4th and we had pony rides too. Great memories.

Great place!

I worked there in 1955. I still miss it.

Me and Dominic Massey would clean all the trash after movies in the am. We would find money.
We got paid by playing pinball machine and candy and popcorn. Some of the best times of my childhood years.

My very first Job was at the drive In.
