The screens are pretty easy to see from m59 when your driving. (not the viewable part, the backs of the screens).

Never been there tho, I would guess it similar to a zoo.

It was actually a real nice set up, very clean too! They had a large concession trailer and very clean bathrooms.
I was hoping to go back this year but it closed. I will definately go back if it reopens.

Uh who told you that? 2 movies back to back was always included. All the drive ins around this area in Michigan are like that. Only thing you're not supposed to do is move your vehicle to a different screen.

EDIT: Yes it is reopening and so is the one in Flint which closed at the end of last season.

The US23 in Drive In in Flint never closed... only for the winter season? There was rumors it wouldn't reopen last year, but they were able to lease it out.

The Miracle Twin in Davison closed end of 2008, and has been up for sale, I have not heard anything about it re-opening. That is a shame too, it was MUCH nicer then the US23 drive in.

Oh I was under the impression the US23 closed and switched owners. This is from their page. It was all renovated. Not sure.

From what I have read, the family of the owner that died, have kept it for now, but leased it to a theater management company. I heard rumors there is an option to buy after so many years, but it was second hand that I heard it.

I just wish they advertised they don't have speaker poles there. The Miracle Twin still had them, so when we took the Willys we could still hear. The US23 we had to rely on the cars around us blaring their radios.

That and the people at the US23 were twice as trashy when I was there I wasn't at US23 5 minutes and the lady next to us started bitching about me having the 5 gallon jerry can on the Willys. She claimed she was allergic to gasoline. I told her the gasoline wouldn't be leaving the can. I didn't move and she fired up a cigarette, I was hoping it would be flame on!
