Long Description:
The Ford-Wyoming Drive-In Theatre opened in 1950 with one screen and space for 750 cars. Today, the drive-in is the largest in the United States with nine screens and space for 3,000 cars. The Ford-Wyoming is open year round and supplies car heaters in the winter.

We happened to be in the neighborhood and swung in to get some pictures of this place when I notice somebody pulling trash out of a mini-van. When they were done they asked what we were doing and we told them we were taking some pictues. Well then they introduced themselves as management and gave us the $.50 tour. They showed us one of the projector rooms with all the equipment including the giant platter the film's on. Then our son was given some popcorn and cotton candy and something to drink. They also gave us free passes and a copy of the trailer for "I Know Who Killed Me". They were only going to throw it away.
