In a thick column of smoke, the Sunset Drive-In Theater passed into memory Monday morning.

So very sad this has to be buried to the ground. I used to go to this drive in with my family years ago, it was truly a lost art in that you could sit in your own car and enjoy a movie on the big screen. My sadness is that the land will be used for a gravel pit and not for something that Craig really needs. It is such a perfect stop for a business. The days of remembering a fun experience are now gone, but looking at a pile of dirt isn't my idea of progress. So very sad indeed.
