On June 14th we have an event planned called the Seaway Drive-In Experience. It's a drag racing theme movie night at the original Seaway Drive-in property in Algonac. The movie showing will be The Snake & Mongoose and we will also be showing 15 minutes of unseen footage of Motorcity Dragway from 1972 on the big screen. This footage includes cars like Corkys The Janitor, Gregs Toy, Little Hustler, The Mongoose (from Mt Clemens I think) Greg Liedecker and a lot of local guys that were at the track all the time. There will also be classic cars and drag cars on display.

For info email seawaydrivein@gmail. com.

This building is no longer graveyard status. A local church (I believe Algonac Baptist) has bought the building and is currently using it for their events.

The consession stand was demolished in February 2005, there is nothing left.

The snack bar/projection booth remains. The lot is OWNED by a local church that uses the property for picnics and other activities, but no actual church has been built on the site (yet). This location was apparently showing X rated movies at the end of its run. Large, hi-intensity lamps were aimed at the street to inhibit people from seeing the screen while the movie was showing.

Closed permanantly 1986. One night when they were open, my date and I had the only car there, and they STILL ran the movie. James Allor.
