Deer Lake Drive-In

Another pleasant surprise. We were driving on Rt. 61 from Reading on our way to Centralia when Annie noticed the sign for this abandoned drive-in on the side of the road. I made a quick U-turn and jumped out to shoot some photos. The screen was pretty beat up, and a sign for some construction company was nearby. This will probably be leveled pretty soon, so I’m glad I got to see it when I did; according to Drive, the ticket booth and projection building were demolished in ’06. Among the rubble we saw an old swing set and a very, very destroyed set of monkey bars. The drive-in has been unused since 1996.
