I remember this as a fun place. A place different to go other that the big star Melody roller rink. Us out of towner kids whose parents owned cabins and cottages around big and little twin lakes would go there to meet and hang out with other teens, we even would watch the movie sometimes. the first time I had too much to drink was there, with Norm Hunt and Betty Johnson. I had the biggest crush on a girl.

who I believe was the owners daughter. she was a Valerie bertinelli looking girl. she sometimes worked in the concession stand. wonder what ever happened to her.

That was so long ago, 1969 to 1976 or so when I went there.

A friend of mine grandfather owned the property and theater. I was at the property over the 4th of July weekend and came across the old screen. It was in great shape for its age. I had no idea it was ever there, all the times I have been to Baldwin. I had no idea that my friends grandfather owned the theater until I told her I found a old drive-in theater screen in the woods.

The field is overgrown now as well as trees by the screen, no remnants of any drive in stuff left.

I used to frequent that drive in theatre. I believe it was owned by the Gent family. If they did not own it they ran the business. As kids we would have two people pay to get in and the others run through the woods and get in the car afterwards. It was a fun place for us during our youthful years.

You may want to start a new entry under Baldwin. While in Baldwin Sunday evening, I saw a picture of the Baldwin Theatre while at Jones'' Ice Cream. I''ll do a little more research and see if I can get a copy.

The Pine Aire Drive-In in Baldwin has a new self-storage business occupying the front half of the site. The 72 by 44 corrugated steel screen tower remains, in very good condition. Also remaining are several rows of ramps and a few speaker poles. All evidence of the snack bar foundation was removed during the construction of the storage unit. The owner of the self-storage was on-site, and was very helpful answering our questions about the drive-in.

He indicated the drive-in closed in the mid-70s. He also confirmed the current screen is the Pine Aires second, replacing the original wood tower sometime long ago. The original wood towers concrete foundations are still in place, unused by the steel tower.

A recent site inspection revealed that the lot is under development, with a Mini Storage facility at the front. The screen still stands.
