The Corral?

Drive-In Theater

I chose this picture today because it reminded me a lot of the drive-in that I grew up with in my old home town in Iowa (not counting what look like mountains in the background). The Corral Drive-In had a similar screen and was situated in a grass field behind a few rows of trees, just like this one - at least as far as I can remember; although there would have been a barb-wire fence running along the property just past the big tree on the left at The Corral. It closed in 1989, and most of the property was taken over by a parking lot for the vacuum cleaner factory next door, but I imagine this is pretty close to what it would look like if it were still standing today...
